January 31, 2017

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement after Judge Neil Gorsuch was nominated to the Supreme Court:

    “I commend the president on his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. From his 10 years of experience as a federal circuit court judge who decided thousands of cases to his time at the Department of Justice, Judge Gorsuch has a proven track record of faithfully upholding the Constitution, maintaining the separation of powers, and respecting that the proper role of a judge is to say what the law is not what it should be. Like Justice Scalia whose seat he will fill, Judge Gorsuch follows the text and original meaning of the Constitution, and will serve the American people well. I urge Congress to approve his nomination without delay.”
