WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today released the following statement after Senate Democrats blocked an up-or-down vote on the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to be associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Judge Gorsuch is an exceptional nominee with the right judicial temperament and a strong reliance on the text of our Constitution and laws. I am extremely disappointed by the blind obstruction carried out by Senate Democrats today. The Senate and our country are headed in a dangerous direction if this type of partisan behavior continues. Though I had hoped that my Democrat colleagues might be willing to put country over party and do the right thing here today, there is no reason for further delay of the Senate’s consideration of Judge Gorsuch. I urge the Senate to move quickly toward a final vote on his nomination to fill this critical vacancy.”
