Sanford Statement on Gorsuch

Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Representative Mark Sanford released the following statement regarding the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court:

"I applaud President Trump's decision to nominate Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch is a distinguished jurist and has proven his resolve in strictly interpreting the Constitution and in standing for liberty."

"Judge Gorsuch is not only well accredited, but I hope that his having been confirmed previously by a unanimous voice vote in the Senate bodes well for his confirmation to the Supreme Court. Conservatives should be encouraged that Judge Gorsuch understands the balance of power intended by our Founding Fathers as he has indicated regarding his assessment of his soon-to-be predecessor's legacy, saying, 'The great project of Justice Scalia’s career was to remind us of the differences between judges and legislators.'”
