We just observed the one-year anniversary of the passing Justice Antonin Scalia.  As we consider the nomination of his replacement, Judge Neil Gorsuch, it’s incredibly comforting to hear of his admiration for the great constitutionalist that Scalia truly was.

One of the most moving aspects of this nomination announcement was the recognition of the presence of Justice Scalia’s widow and Judge Gorsuch’s words looking straight at her.

He said:

[Audio Clip] Judge Neil Gorsuch: “Justice Scalia was a lion of the law. Agree or disagree with him, all of his colleagues on the bench shared his wisdom and his humor. And like them, I miss him.”

The good news is that Judge Gorsuch exhibits some of the same attributes.  He is a worthy successor.

Our next Supreme Court justice will shape America’s future for generations to come. Judge Neil Gorsuch will uphold conservative, constitutional values. Tell the Senate to confirm him by signing our petition at today. If you’d like to hear these commentaries on the radio, find me on your local radio station.
