February 15-- U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today issued the following statement after his meeting with Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee to serve as the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice:
“Judge Gorsuch has received ample praise from across the political spectrum for his judicial temperament and reliance on the text of our Constitution and laws when forming his opinions. I enjoyed our meeting today and believe that Judge Gorsuch will serve with wisdom and distinction, continuing the fine legacy of the man whom he would replace, the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
“I have confidence that Judge Gorsuch’s hearing before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary will be productive, and there is no reason for any delay of the Senate’s consideration of this outstanding nominee. I urge the Senate to move quickly toward a vote on his nomination to fill this critical vacancy.”
The Senate confirmed Gorsuch unanimously in 2006 for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, based in Denver, Colo.
