"I can't imagine that the president could've chosen a more qualified, more principled, or more mainstream pick for the job of justice of the United States Supreme Court." - Sen. John Cornyn
"Last night President Trump announced an outstanding nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch of Colorado. While Judge Gorsuch has a significant legacy to live up to as the nominee for the seat left vacant by the loss of Justice Scalia, I'm confident his impressive background and long record of service will prepare him well for the task ahead. "Like Justice Scalia, Judge Gorsuch understands the constitutional limits of his authority. He understands that a judge's duty is to apply the law even-handedly, without bias toward one party or another. He understands that his role as a judge is to interpret the law, not impose his own viewpoint or political leanings. He's also been recognized from people on both sides of the aisle as a consistent, principled, and fair jurist. "Judge Gorsuch has a stellar reputation and a resume to match, with degrees from Harvard and Columbia, a PhD in Legal Philosophy from Oxford, and just about every honor, award, and scholarship you can possibly imagine.
