MURPHY STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SUPREME COURT ANNOUNCEMENT

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Tuesday released the following statement following President Donald Trump’s announcement of Judge Neil Gorsuch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver as his nominee to serve as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

“I want a Supreme Court Justice who will fairly interpret the law, uphold the Constitution, and keep politics out of the courtroom. I want a mainstream judge, not an ideological partisan. I’ll take a close look at Judge Gorsuch’s record and judicial philosophy, and ultimately make my decision based on whether he meets those straightforward expectations.”
