U.S. SENATE —U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced that Montana’s Attorney General Tim Fox endorsed Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the next U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice:
“Judge Gorsuch is unquestionably qualified to be our next Supreme Court Justice, garnering enthusiastic support from across the political and ideological spectrum since his nomination,” Fox stated. “Being from the Rocky Mountain West, Gorsuch will add a regional perspective currently not represented by any of the other justices, including an expertise in Indian law that has rarely existed on our nation’s highest court. Although some in the U.S. Senate haven chosen to play politics with Judge Gorsuch’s nomination, there is no legitimate reason not to confirm him, other than to perpetuate exactly what’s wrong with Washington. I’m hopeful that Senator Tester will vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch, standing with Montanans rather than the elites in Washington, D.C.”
On March 15, 2017, Daines spoke on the Senate floor about the importance of confirming Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
