House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced Judge Neil Gorsuch as his nominee for the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Seeing the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s wife in the room tonight was a reminder of what a great loss his passing was for their family, and for our country. Filling Justice Scalia’s shoes will be no easy feat, but if anyone is up to the challenge, it’s Judge Gorsuch. Not one to be swayed by political whims, Judge Gorsuch understands the importance of limiting federal power and preserving the people’s voice. He is a guardian of the Constitution, and this is a win for those who value our separation of powers and representative government. President Trump promised a ‘truly great’ choice for the Supreme Court, and he followed through. I encourage our Senate colleagues to quickly confirm Justice Gorsuch.”
