Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch:

"In nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, President Trump has chosen a well-respected judge with a distinguished body of work. The Supreme Court, including the next justice, could determine the course of the law for decades. We need a nominee with a demonstrated record of interpreting the Constitution according to its text, structure, and history. These decisions are weighty-and I don't undertake them lightly. So I look forward to meeting with Judge Gorsuch soon to talk more in depth about how he sees the role of the Court and his own judicial philosophy."
