Press Release

Washington, DC –  Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States. 

Rep. Smith: “President Trump has long spoken of his conservative vision for our country’s next Supreme Court Justice being in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia. Last November, the American people decided what type of Justice they wanted to fill the vacancy on the Court. President Trump made it clear that he would nominate a jurist who would interpret and defend the Constitution as intended by our Founders. He has done just that by nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch.”
