WASHINGTON (NRB) – Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of National Religious Broadcasters, issued the following statement in response to President Donald J. Trump’s announcement that he has nominated Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court:
“Promise made. Promise kept. I’m deeply grateful for President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch as the next associate justice on the United States Supreme Court. President Trump boldly told the American people the list of potential justices from which he would make his choice, and he kept that promise by nominating Judge Gorsuch. This imminently qualified judge has a demonstrated track record of honoring the Constitution and the rule of law. We are especially encouraged by his commitment to religious freedom, America’s first freedom. We urge the United States Senate to fulfill its constitutional duty to advise and consent, which would reasonably result in Judge Gorsuch’s speedy confirmation to the Supreme Court bench.”
