LaMalfa Applauds Senate Confirmation of Neil Gorsuch
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the United States Senate voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court. As an Associate justice, Gorsuch will fill the seat left vacant by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.
LaMalfa said: “I am very pleased that the Senate voted to confirm Judge Gorsuch as our next Supreme Court Justice. Now, we will once again have a champion of originalist thought to fill the seat once occupied by the late Justice Scalia. It was clear that those who opposed Judge Gorsuch did so only because he was nominated by a Republican President, and not based on his merits, qualifications, or character. Judge Gorsuch deserved to be confirmed and I fully support the Senate for doing what was necessary to make it happen."
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
