“Gorsuch is Unquestionably Qualified, Mainstream, Shares Nevada Values” 

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) today released the following statement after voting to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Throughout Judge Neil Gorsuch’s thorough vetting process that included 20 hours of public testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee and dozens of meetings with individual Senators including myself, he demonstrated that he is exceptionally qualified to serve on the nation’s highest court. He has a record of strict adherence to interpreting the Constitution as written and he has proven to be a thoughtful, mainstream jurist. The Senate’s unanimous confirmation of his nomination to serve on the appellate court nearly a decade ago is evidence of that,” said Heller. “I’m thrilled that a fellow Westerner who is familiar with issues that matter to us most will now serve on the Supreme Court, and I’m confident that Nevadans and generations to come are better off because of it.”
