WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today in support of Neil Gorsuch for the next associate justice of the United States Supreme Court:

“The role of the Senate is to provide 'advice and consent.' Many Americans are going to have to live with this Justice the rest of their natural lives. His decisions will affect many facets of their lives, economically, socially, culturally, and spiritually,” said Sen. Kennedy. “The American people deserve a full and fair vetting process. I like what I see so far, but look forward to learning more in the confirmation process. Neil Gorsuch is obviously very well-qualified based on his education and background, but I want to know what's in his heart. I want to know what he thinks about past Supreme Court decisions and how the Justices reached those decisions. I want to know whether he thinks personal preferences have a role in the judicial decision-making. I want to know if he knows the name of the person who cleans his office.  Also, I'm rather fond of the U.S. Constitution, and I want to make sure he is, too.”
