Press Release

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative David Kustoff (TN-08) today released the following statement on the President’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court bench left by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.  

“I commend President Trump for his careful consideration in selecting Judge Neil Gorsuch as his nominee to the Supreme Court,” said Kustoff. “From his seat in the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Gorsuch exhibited clear conservative values and a strong record of upholding the original intent of the Constitution. I am pleased the American people had the opportunity to voice their opinion when electing our new President last November, and I will support a swift Senate confirmation.”
