New Mexico GOP On Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

RPNM News:

ALBUQUERQUE ― The Republican Party of New Mexico released the following statement Wednesday on President Donald J. Trump’s choice to nominate Appeals Court Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court:

“Aside from bringing some much-needed geographic diversity to the court, Judge Gorsuch is exceptionally well-qualified and we welcome his thoughtful, reasoned approach to the law on the Supreme Court once he is confirmed,” spokesman Tucker Keene said. “Gorsuch’s independent spirit, strong credentials and widely-respected intellect make him a fitting successor to Scalia’s legacy. We encourage Senators Udall and Heinrich not to stand in the way of his nomination and allow those of us in the Southwest a voice on the Supreme Court.”
