Donald Trump Nominates Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court

Gor­such Fol­lows Scalia In Time and Philosophy

WASHINGTON — Pres­i­dent Trump on Tues­day nom­i­nated Judge Neil M. Gor­such to the Supreme Court, ele­vat­ing a con­ser­v­a­tive in the mold of Jus­tice Antonin Scalia to suc­ceed the late jurist and touch­ing off a bru­tal, par­ti­san show­down at the start of his pres­i­dency over the ide­o­log­i­cal bent of the nation’s high­est court.

Mr. Trump announced his selec­tion dur­ing a much-anticipated evening cer­e­mony that unfolded in prime time at the White House. He described Judge Gor­such, a fed­eral appeals court judge based in Den­ver, as “a man who our coun­try really needs, and needs badly, to ensure the rule of law and the rule of jus­tice.” See the full arti­cle here.
