WASHINGTON - Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) today released the following statement on the selection of Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

"Judge Gorsuch boasts an impeccable academic and judicial resume, making him an excellent pick to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court. His record on the Tenth Circuit makes clear he believes a judge's role is to apply the law based on the original text of the Constitution, not impose their own preference or ideology. Our highest court should reflect a legal philosophy that places life, liberty, and the words of the Constitution above all else. Judge Gorsuch will uphold that vision and be a defender of our foundational principles on the Supreme Court. I support his nomination and look forward to his confirmation." 

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the 1st District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he is the Chairman of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
