MRP Chairman Statement on Senator Peters meeting with Judge Gorsuch

LANSING, Mich., February 16, 2017 – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser issued the following statement today regarding Michigan Senator Gary Peters’ meeting with President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch:

“President Donald Trump was elected by the American people in large part to bring a mainstream conservative jurist to the Supreme Court of the United States. Yet, 15 days have passed since Judge Neil Gorsuch was nominated and Senator Peters has yet to commit to supporting an up-or-down vote in the full Senate. The voters of Michigan have spoken, and Senator Peters should respect the will of the people. I urge Senator Peters to stand with Michiganders, not Chuck Schumer, by supporting an up-or-down vote on Gorsuch in the full Senate.”
