ABC urged Senators to vote to avoid a partisan filibuster and ensure that the U.S. Senate has the opportunity to vote on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court. ABC also informed Senators that it will consider the vote a key vote for its 115th congressional scorecard.

In a letter, ABC highlighted Judge Gorsuch’s judicial record and confirmation by the U.S. Senate for previous appointments saying, “with a strong record of judicial integrity and respect for the Constitution, Judge Gorsuch is an exceptional choice to serve on the Supreme Court, and we applaud the Trump Administration for his nomination. Given that Judge Gorsuch’s appointment to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals on July 20, 2006, was approved by voice vote without opposition, we believe there should be bipartisan support for his nomination to serve as an associate justice of the Supreme Court.”

ABC is encouraging all members to call on their senators to vote to avoid a filibuster on Judge Gorsuch’s nomination. Members can take action through the ABC Action Center or through the ABC Action App on both iPhone and Android devices.

Filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court is one of ABC’s top priorities for the Trump Administration, and we encourage the Senate to act quickly to restore the court to its full strength. ABC praised Judge Gorsuch’s nomination when he was announced earlier this year.
