U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced that Judge Neil Gorsuch secured the endorsement of three key Montana judges and one former judge to be the next U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice.
In a letter sent to U.S. Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Steve Daines (R-MT) and Jon Tester (D-MT), Judge Russell Fagg, Thirteenth Judicial District, Judge Jeffrey Langton, Twenty-First Judicial District, Judge John Larson, Fourth Judicial District and State Senator Nels Swandal, retired Judge Sixth Judicial District endorsed Gorsuch.
“Judge Gorsuch will provide valuable insight and perspective from the Western states on a Supreme Court that is dominated by Justices hailing from the Eastern seaboard,” they wrote. “He’s not only established as a fair and impartial judge with an intimidating academic and professional background, he’s also a Westerner who embraces the ideals and vision of more than half of the country that remains unrepresented on the Court. In fact, Judge Gorsuch admitted to preferring dry flies to wet flies during the lengthy confirmation hearings, and that’s an opinion all Montanans can respect.”
