Labrador Applauds Senate Confirmation of Judge GorsuchFriday April 07, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) released the following statement today after the U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“The Senate fulfilled its constitutional responsibility today by confirming an outstanding judge to our nation’s highest court. Judge Gorsuch is an experienced and well-respected jurist who understands that a judge’s duty is to interpret the law, not to change the law to advance his personal agenda. Applying the Constitution is a judge’s deepest responsibility, whether the Senate Democrats who opposed Judge Gorsuch understand that or not.
“I want to thank President Trump for keeping his campaign promise to appoint a judge to the Supreme Court in the mold of Justice Scalia. I am confident that Judge Gorsuch will make the people of Idaho and of this great nation proud.”
