LaMalfa Supports President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump selected Neil Gorsuch as his nominee for the Supreme Court vacancy left by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.
LaMalfa said: “Justice Scalia was a strong conservative voice on the Supreme Court for thirty years. Now, I am happy that we will have a new face to fill his seat and carry on his legacy of upholding the original meaning of the Constitution and fighting for the values America was founded on. Neil Gorsuch will be a champion of originalist thought on the bench for many years to come. I support his nomination and my hope is that the Senate will move swiftly to confirm him.”
