U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement following the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

“Today Judge Gorsuch takes his black robe to the Supreme Court and that’s an important civics lesson for our kids. He’s a judge’s judge who knows that his job isn’t to wear a red or blue jersey under that black robe and re-write laws. His duty is to faithfully uphold the Constitution. That’s good for Nebraskans, good for the rule of law, and good for the next generation of Americans.”
