Alexandria, VA – The Center for Competitive Politics (CCP) released the following statement in reaction to today’s Senate confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“Today is a great day for our civil rights and our nation,” said David Keating, President of CCP. “Justice Gorsuch has a superb record of standing up for the constitutional rights of Americans. He applies careful scrutiny to laws at a time when our free speech rights are under attack. We are very pleased to have a justice of his caliber fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court.”
