Nebraska’s Republican U.S. Senators are voicing their support for President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Federal Judge Neil Gorsuch. Senator Sasse applauds the choice.
Senator Sasse says, “Let’s just start by saying this is a victory for America and I applaud the president on his pick. It is bizarre that people like Senator Schumer had a sort of fill-in-the-blank protest and dissent plan well before he knew who the guy was. They pre-planned to fight that way which is unfortunate because we should use this as an occasion to teach kids civics.”
Senator Sasse says Gorsuch will next meet with committee and leadership members and others that express an interest to meet. The next step will be the confirmation hearings and that could take weeks or months depending on the opposition.
