President Trump's choice of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late, great Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court is yet another example of the new commander-in-chief keeping promises to the American people.
Judge Gorsuch is only 49 years old. He clerked for several prominent judges, including Supreme Court Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy. In 2006, he was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, where he currently serves, and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in a unanimous voice vote. Judge Gorsuch is also known for being a strong defender of religious liberty. In his key rulings, he sided with Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor in their case against the Obama administration's contraception mandate.
An originalist, intellectual and patriot for the Supreme Court. And a home run for President Trump.
