Sen. Bill Cassidy

Today, President Trump announced the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, filling the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia. Judge Gorsuch presently serves on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Colorado.

 

US Senator Bill Cassidy, MD (R-LA) released the following statement on Gorsuch’s nomination:

 

“Judge Gorsuch is an intelligent conservative and will bring a necessary perspective to ensure a fair and balanced Supreme Court. A swift confirmation is imperative while the seat remains open,” saidDr. Cassidy. “The recent election gave the American people a voice in this debate and they made themselves heard by electing President Trump to fill this vacancy. Any action to prevent or delay a vote on Gorsuch’s nomination is purely political and opposed to the wishes of the American people.”
