Washington, D.C. â€“ U.S. Senators Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., and John Barrasso, R-Wyo., released the following statements today after the Senate confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the next associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
â€œI congratulate Judge Neil Gorsuch on his confirmation to the highest court in the land. He is an admirable choice to serve in this prestigious capacity and I have faith that he will execute his responsibilities with the utmost skill and honor. He has a keen understanding of the rule of law, and as a westerner, will provide a unique perspective to key issues. I believe he will serve the American people well.â€
â€œToday, the Senate confirmed one of the most highly qualified judges in the country to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. During his career on the bench, Judge Gorsuch has been a model of integrity, intelligence and independence. He will also bring a unique Rocky Mountain perspective to the court. Judge Gorsuch is a fitting replacement for the seat vacated by the late Justice Scalia, and Iâ€™m proud to have supported his confirmation.â€
