NHGOP Statement on Senator Shaheen Opposition to Supreme Court Nominee Gorsuch


NHGOP Statement on Senator Shaheen Opposition
to Supreme Court Nominee Gorsuch

For Immediate Release: March 28, 2017

CONCORD – NHGOP Chairman Jeanie Forrester released the following statement reacting to Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s announcement that she will oppose the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch:

“There is no reason, beyond political partisanship, for Senator Jeanne Shaheen to deny Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation. Throughout the hearing process, Judge Gorsuch demonstrated that he is an independent jurist, commendable human being, and absolutely qualified to serve on our nation’s highest court.  Sadly, Senator Shaheen would rather play obstructionist games and vote lock-step with liberal Democrats, like Chuck Schumer, than confirm a judge who has received high praise across the board.”
