Today, State Representative Jay Fant made the following statement following the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next Supreme Court Justice:
“Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation for the Supreme Court makes this a great day for America. His deep and abiding commitment to the U.S. Constitution combined with his humility, intellect, and fair-mindedness make him a superb addition to our nation’s highest court. He has demonstrated that Americans can count on him to respect the separation of powers and interpret the law rather than re-make it according to his personal political preferences. I look forward to the contributions his presence on the bench will make to our republic for generations to come.”
