Washington, D.C. –Today, the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, will draw to a close.Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), the largest public policy organization for women in the country, had this to say on the performance of Judge Neil Gorsuch at his hearings to become the next justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:
“Senate Democrats have tried every way they can to show from Neil Gorsuch’s record one reason to vote against him. But they have come up empty. There is not a single reasonable reason on Judge Gorsuch’s record to vote against him.
“Now, we know many object to President Trump or Steve Bannon or the Republicans’ treatment of Judge Garland, and they will choose the unprecedented, radical position not to vote for Judge Gorsuch as a result. But, looking at his record, he comes out of now his third day of hearings unscathed.
“He has been thoughtful, poised, reasonable, independent, caring, empathetic, and humble. He has shown himself to be beyond all reasonable doubt a mainstream nominee worthy of each and every senator’s vote.
“The thousands of members of Concerned Women for America around the country that I represent are united in asking all senators to put politics aside for once and act in the best interest of our country by voting for Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.”
