TILLIS: “The nominee before us today is not President Trump. The nominee before us today is not Leader McConnell, and it’s not Judge Merrick Garland; it’s one of the most extraordinarily talented and capable people that we could possibly have going to the Supreme Court. So I hope that this nomination hearing focuses on the one person before us who will go on, I believe, to fill the Supreme Court.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – During today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, Senator Tillis spoke in favor of Judge Gorsuch’s impressive qualifications and track record of being a mainstream and independent-minded jurist.
