North Carolina Values Coalition Statement on President Trump's Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch:

“ The NC Values Coalition is thrilled by President Trump’s nomination tonight of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. All North Carolinians should appreciate Judge Gorsuch’s immense respect for our founding documents and his support for the values of life, liberty and religious freedom. Like Justice Scalia, Judge Gorsuch is an exceptionally strong originalist constitutional jurist who strongly dislikes judicial activism. The NC Value Coalition calls on Senators Richard Burr and Senator Thom Tillis to support the President’s nomination of Judge Gorsuch who, in 2006 was confirmed by the Senate on a simple voice vote. “

- Tami Fitzgerald, North Carolina Values Coalition Executive Director
