LANSING, Mich., March 21, 2017 – Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser issued the following statement regarding Judge Neil Gorsuch’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee:
“Judge Neil Gorsuch demonstrated to America today that he is ready, willing, and absolutely qualified to serve on the nation’s highest court. He is a principled, Rule-of-Law jurist who has committed and demonstrated that his role as a judge is not to make laws, but to ensure that they are upheld as written. Despite political posturing by Democrats, Judge Gorsuch deserves to be confirmed.
“Senators Stabenow and Peters have no reason to stall an up or down vote on Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. Senator Stabenow voted once to confirm Judge Gorsuch, and she should do so again.”
