Wicker Statement on the Nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court

January 31, 2017

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today issued the following statement after President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:

“When voters chose Donald Trump to be President, they made it clear that the Supreme Court vacancy should be filled by a jurist in the conservative mold of Justice Antonin Scalia. President Trump’s choice of Neil Gorsuch meets that high standard. Judge Gorsuch is known for his mainstream, principled opinions. I am hopeful that he will receive a fair and timely confirmation process based on his record rather than partisan conjecture.”
