WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today voted to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Below is Sen. Kennedy's statement:

“Alexander Hamilton said in Federalist No. 78 that the court has 'neither force nor will, but merely judgment.'  I think that is what we should be looking for in a nominee to any court, but especially the Supreme Court,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “We need someone with excellent judgment.  We need someone who understands that the role of a judge is to interpret the law, not make it.  And in that regard, Judge Gorsuch is as good as it gets.  Judge Gorsuch is a strict constitutionalist who believes that a judge's personal policy preferences should not affect the outcome of a case.  He's a legal rock star.  I am proud to have voted for Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.”
