Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) issued the following statement regarding the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

“I was honored to be invited to the White House to attend the President’s introduction and nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. It was certainly an historic moment and I was happy to be there in person. Gorsuch’s impressive track record of defending our U.S. Constitution has rightfully earned him the reputation as an originalist. I am confident he is the right nominee and will follow closely in the footsteps of his predecessor, the late Antonin Scalia.”
