US Senator Johnny Isakson issued a statement on Wednesday after meeting with Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to serve as the next US Supreme Court Justice.
In his statement, Isakson says, “I have confidence that Judge Gorsuch’s hearing before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary will be productive, and there is no reason for any delay of the Senate’s consideration of this outstanding nominee. I urge the Senate to move quickly toward a vote on his nomination to fill this critical vacancy.”
Gorsuch has been nominated by President Trump to the vacancy left on the US Supreme Court by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last year.
The Senate previously confirmed Gorsuch unanimously in 2006 for a seat on the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, based in Denver, Colorado.
