Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:

“I believe Neil Gorsuch is a strong choice to serve on our Supreme Court.  Judge Gorsuch’s record indicates he will be a strong defender of the Constitution and American liberties. Judge Gorsuch is well qualified and was approved unanimously via voice vote for his current seat on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. I applaud Senate Republicans for making sure that Justice Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court was not filled during a contentious election by a lame-duck president, and ensuring the new justice was chosen by the president elected by American voters in our recent election. I’m hopeful that the Senate will act quickly to consider and confirm the nomination of Neil Gorsuch.”
