FFC Chairman Ralph Reed Statement On President Trump’s Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch To U.S. Supreme Court

Duluth, GA – Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed issued the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s announcement that he will nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch of Colorado to the U.S Supreme Court.

“President Trump won 81 percent of the evangelical vote in no small measure because he made an ironclad pledge that if elected he would fill the vacancy on the US Supreme Court with a strict constructionist who would respect the Constitution and the rule of law, not legislate from the bench.  We never doubted then-candidate Trump’s sincerity or commitment, and by nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch, he has now kept that promise. Judge Gorsuch is a widely respected jurist whose razor-sharp intellect is complemented by his temperament and the knowledge of the law. He is exactly who the nation needs as a Supreme Court Justice in the model of the late Antonin Scalia. Faith & Freedom Coalition is thrilled by this nomination and will work tirelessly for the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.”
