Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman Statement Regarding The Confirmation Of Judge Neil Gorsuch As Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court

Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman released this statement following the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:


“It is sad that Senate Republicans had to resort to permanently changing Senate rules to confirm a Supreme Court nominee that was so extreme he couldn't garner a strong bipartisan consensus of support. Concerns about Judge Gorsuch reached beyond party politics, including his troubling legal record on women's reproductive rights and prioritizing businesses over the health and well-being of workers and the public—a record far outside the mainstream. I'm disappointed -- but not surprised -- that President Trump refused to put forth a more unifying nominee to the highest court in the land.”
