President Trump selected federal appeals judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, a nomination that has conservatives and Republicans in general very pleased. After the late Justice Scalia, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decided to leave his seat open until the Presidential election was wrapped.

Fox News adds, “The nomination of Gorsuch was also praised by several conservative groups. Marjorie Dannenfelser, the head of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, described the judge as “distinguished jurist with a strong record of protecting life and religious liberty, as evidenced by his opinions in the Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor cases.”
Tea Party Patriots President Jenny Beth Martin added that Gorsuch “has a distinguished record that demonstrates he will be fair to all Americans, no matter their background or beliefs.”
