Rep. Kelly Applauds Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to U.S. Supreme Court

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA) issued the following statement tonight in support of the nomination by President Donald Trump of Judge Neil Gorsuch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“I commend President Trump for his exceptional choice for the Supreme Court and congratulate Judge Gorsuch on the tremendous honor bestowed upon him. This nomination is great news for our country and our Constitution. Judge Gorsuch is supremely qualified to serve on the high court, where I believe he will faithfully interpret the law and uphold the God-given, constitutionally protected rights of all Americans. The seat left vacated by the legendary Justice Antonin Scalia put the future of the court in uncertain territory, but the voice of the American people last November ensured that the originalist spirit of Justice Scalia will continue to guide the court and its many consequential decisions for years to come. I call on all of my colleagues in the Senate to respect the people’s will, put country before party, and give Judge Gorsuch the support he overwhelmingly deserves.”
