Politicians respond to Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court

Politicians are responding to news that Donald Trump has selected Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next Supreme Court justice.

If confirmed by the Senate, Gorsuch will fill the seat left vacant by Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016. Former President Barack Obama's pick to full Scalia's seat, Judge Merrick Garland, was not given a confirmation by the Senate.
