Freedom Partners Applauds Senate for Confirming Judge Gorsuch to Supreme Court

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA — The U.S. Senate has voted to confirm Federal Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Freedom Partners has strongly supported Judge Gorsuch, a qualified and experienced nominee who respects the Constitution and understands the proper role of the courts.

Freedom Partners Chairman Mark Holden issued the following statement:

“Judge Gorsuch will make an outstanding Supreme Court Justice. His confirmation is a victory for all Americans who believe in the rule of law and upholding the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, including our fundamental liberties contained in the Bill of Rights. His understanding of the proper role of judges as interpreters of the law as it is written – not legislators with a political agenda – will be an important protection against improper administrative overreach, which has led to an erosion in the proper constitutional roles of the three branches of the federal government.

 

“It’s disappointing that Democrats such as Senators Jon Tester and Claire McCaskill decided to grandstand and obstruct Judge Gorsuch’s nomination rather than consider him on the merits. Nonetheless, we congratulate President Trump on nominating such a well-qualified individual and we applaud the Senate for confirming him.”
