Senator David Perdue Statement On Democrats Attempt To Block Vote On Judge Gorsuch

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) commented on Senate Democrats attempt to block debate and an up-or-down vote on the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch: 

“Judge Gorsuch is a principled jurist who is steadfast in his commitment to defending the Constitution. Democrats have agreed, and they confirmed Judge Gorsuch without objection in 2006. That’s why it is ridiculous Democrats today put self-interest and party-interest ahead of the nation’s interest. Republicans this year have said all along we’ll do what it takes to get Judge Gorsuch the up-or-down vote he deserves, and next week he will be an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court.”
