Cole Congratulates Judge Gorsuch on Confirmation to the Supreme Court
April 7, 2017
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) congratulated Judge Neil Gorsuch after his confirmation to the Supreme Court by the Senate. Gorsuch was confirmed by a vote of 54-45.
“I applaud the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court," said Cole. "He is well within the judicial mainstream and like Justice Scalia, is a firm defender of our Constitution. I believe his sound judgement combined with his civil demeanor makes him a truly outstanding person to sit on the highest court in the land."
“The vote on Judge Gorsuch should have been a no-brainer. He was clearly qualified to fill the vacant seat and had been confirmed unanimously by the Senate when he was nominated to his previous position on the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. I am confident that his tenure on the Supreme Court will demonstrate to the American people that this confirmation should have been similarly unanimous.”
