Scott Statement on President’s SCOTUS Nominee

Washington– U.S. Senator Tim Scott released the following statement after President Trump announced Judge Neil Gorsuch for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States:

“I am happy to see that President Trump has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as Supreme Court Justice. With over a decade of experience on the Tenth Circuit, Gorsuch has the reputation of a consistent conservative and someone who will uphold the Constitution and defend our country’s founding principles. His record shows that he fully supports religious liberty and protects freedom of speech. I believe that Judge Gorsuch will serve as a great successor to the late Justice Scalia, and I look forward to supporting his nomination over the coming months.”
