Jan 31 2017
WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on the Supreme Court:
“Millions of Americans went to their polling places on election day to make their voices heard on the type of jurist they want serving on the Supreme Court. They decided to put their trust in President Trump to fill the Court’s vacant seat.
I am encouraged by how well-respected Judge Gorsuch is in legal circles and how highly experts speak of his intellect, experience and temperament which are all important qualities for the job.
Now that the President has made his selection, we will move forward with the confirmation process. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, regardless of party, will respect the will of the voters and treat him fairly during the confirmation process.”
