Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:

“The confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch is nothing short of a victory for our Constitution and the rule of law. Too many public institutions have lost the faith of the American people by abusing their authority and acting outside of their constitutional limits. Justice Gorsuch will help restore trust in the Supreme Court by remaining true to its purpose—adjudicating cases according to the text of the law and the Constitution above all other considerations. Republicans, Democrats, and everybody in between should celebrate that a man of such principle and clarity has taken the seat of the late, great Justice Scalia.”
