Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Rooney (FL-17) issued the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:

“Judge Neil Gorsuch has proved himself to be a strong defender of the Constitution through his service on the U.S. Court of Appeals 10th Circuit. His defense of life demonstrates that he is a fitting candidate to replace Antonin Scalia. Also, he was confirmed unanimously by the Senate 10 years ago for the Circuit Court. As such, the Senate should confirm Judge Gorsuch without delay.”
