Isakson Applauds Senate Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch

Gorsuch 'will serve with wisdom and distinction' on nation's highest court

MARIETTA, Ga. – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today applauded Senate confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as the next justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Isakson, who is in Georgia today recovering from two back surgeries, was not present for today’s vote. He was in Washington on Thursday and spoke in favor of Judge Gorsuch during debate on the Senate floor.

“Judge Gorsuch’s judicial temperament and his ironclad commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law make him an excellent addition to our nation’s highest court,” said Isakson. “I’m so proud to have someone like Judge Gorsuch who will serve on the Supreme Court with wisdom and distinction, continuing the fine legacy of the man whom he will replace, the late Justice Antonin Scalia.”
