“Standing here in a house of history, and acutely aware of my own imperfections, I pledge that if I am confirmed, I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great country.”
House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today applauding the Senate confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
“Today is a day for celebration. Watching Justice Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings, there was no doubt in my mind that President Trump nominated the right man for this responsibility. He is a truly humble, intelligent, and qualified judge. With an unwavering sense of duty to the rule of law and to his country, I know he will be a steadfast guardian of our Constitution on the high court. Thank you to our Senate colleagues for confirming Justice Gorsuch. The late Justice Scalia’s vacancy has been filled by a worthy successor.”
