WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) issued the following statement after the United States Senate confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court. 

“I am thrilled that a bipartisan majority has voted to confirm Judge Gorsuch, who is eminently qualified to serve on our nation’s highest court,” said Senator Ernst. “Throughout his career, Judge Gorsuch has shown an unparalleled depth of understanding and respect for our Constitution. He is dedicated to interpreting the text of the Constitution and statutes as they are written, rather than attempting to legislate from the bench. It’s easy to see why Judge Gorsuch was previously confirmed by the Senate with unanimous support – including the support of Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

“The American people are behind Judge Gorsuch, and I look forward to seeing him take his seat on the bench very soon.”
