When Heritage proposed keeping Antonin Scalia’s seat open on the Supreme Court until after the election, it was seen as impossible. Yet, with your support, conservatives held firm and kept the pressure on Congress to wait.

During President Trump’s campaign, he released a list of Supreme Court Justice nominees which Heritage approved. Now he has nominated Neil Gorsuch to be the next Supreme Court Justice.

Next week, Judge Gorsuch will appear for hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee that are expected to last a few days.

This week Heritage hosted an event titled, Who is Neil Gorsuch? A Closer Look at Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee.

Watch the video below to find out more about Judge Gorsuch.

In what ways do you hope Judge Gorsuch will continue in Justice Scalia’s legacy?

W. D. Davidson - March 17, 2017

I believe he will ONLY interpet the Constitution, not make law from his bench.

CAROL DAVIS - March 17, 2017

I PRAY HE WILL CONTINUE IN ALL THINGS THAT JUSTICE SCALIA STOOD FOR

Gary Leddick - March 17, 2017

The Constitution is THE rock. It is NOT the shifting sands of liberal/progressive/ Democrat whims. May Mr Gorsuch follow that philosophy.

Keith Davidson - March 17, 2017

I totally agree with Mr. Leddick. The Constitution is our guide. It is what makes these United States so great. Our Justices MUST support our Nation by upholding the Constitution. I believe Mr. Gorsuch can and will promote the values and principles established by our Founding Fathers.

Tom Lanners - March 17, 2017

May he follow the Constitution as a strict constructionist.

Nora Felton - March 17, 2017

Maintain the ORIGINAL intent and be a strict Constitutionalist……no more social experiements or tossing with the latest social fads….just keeping government intrusion to the absolute minimum necessary to defend the Country, treat folks fairly if you brak the law, and transport goods

Neil Greiling - March 17, 2017

Keep God in control of your decisions.

Alberta Wamsley - March 17, 2017

Should one walk through the halls of our government looking for one honest man, it would surely be Judge Gorsuch.

Richara A Battista - March 17, 2017

My comment is NOT to Mr. Gorsuch … but to whomsoever is in a position to do so … to hold the SCOTUS justices accountable for doing their job as described in the Constitution … not according to their ideological whims. They should pay for their wrong-doing.

Anita49 - March 17, 2017

Congress, quit holding everything up. Confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. It’s what we voted you in for. Support our President and we the people. You’re there to represent us not for you to show your power. You are not there for that!

amy L. Moore - March 17, 2017

Overturn Roe v Wade. Defund Planned
Parenthood. Overrule dictatorial Declarations. State the facts in terrorism
decisions. Stand behind Police Decisions
that are lawful. Overturn ungodly changes in government.

Bradley Weliver - March 17, 2017

Stick with the constitution, and faith, and everything else will be good.

janice lewis - March 17, 2017

I hope he follows the rule of law and I know he will for he is a God fearing man and isn’t afraid to stand up for what he believes. God bless him and full speed ahead on his nomination, inspite of the liberals.

Kimberly Yoder - March 17, 2017

I pray that he will be faithful to God, and to the Constitution by which God has blessed our nation so greatly and graciously. I pray that he will remain strong in the face of pressure and that he will always seek to do what is right.

Eileen Rapp - March 17, 2017

Following the Constitution. I have never heard of him before but since the Dems & that idiot Shumer speaks badly of him. I want him on the Court. It’s time to get back to basics God & Country. You can’t lose with that combination.

David caraballo - March 17, 2017

I believe Judge Neil Gorsuch is a Great Pick for The Supreme Courts and will Hold up “OUR” Constitution to the Letter of the Law just as our Great Justice Scalia’s. May he rest in Peace.

win sturgeon - March 17, 2017

The constitution is what separates the US from the rest of the world. We have members on the current supreme court that hate it. If we do not have people on the bench who understand it and how it evolved the are country will be a foot note in history.

Strict Constitutionalist, as in Original letter and intent of the Document

Bill Coates - March 17, 2017

In every way – strict originalist opinions, with a shot of humor. We may disregard Senator Schumer’s objections entirely – sixteen years ago, he openly stated that ideology should be one of the items to consider in judicial nominations. He, of course, wanted to confirm only those who share HIS ideology, which has been rejected by the voters.

Elaine Zaske - March 17, 2017

I pray that he will interpret just as Justice Scalia did, without regard to the media influence. Just stick with the Constitution!!

Carin Briggs - March 17, 2017

I agree with the comments given: Uncomprising valuation of all life,Pre-Born to natural death…The Constitution is to remain the plumb line of court case reviews. Passing bills based upon the Constitutional legimitacy, NOT public, or personal sentiment. Doing the Right Thing regardless of pressure to capitulate. I pray for God’s Justice . May Mr. Hirsch humbly yet ferociously judge. Carin Briggs

Susanna McNeil - March 17, 2017

Base interpretations on the original intent of the Constitution and not on subjective ahistorical belief systems. Otherwise the constitution is not a guide, but a rubber band that can be twisted, stretched and otherwise distorted to suit one’s personal feelings.

Robert Hammons - March 17, 2017

All the justices, not just Judge Gorsuch, need to realize it is their job to interpret the laws, according to our constitution, not make law because of their opinion, that’s not their job, thank God.

Anita Liverman - March 17, 2017

He appears to be ethically sound and morally upright, both of which the Supreme Court is in dire need of. I believe he will fight for what the Constitution actually says, not what they can dream up that really isn’t in there

Francis Antalek - March 18, 2017

Thanks to all the researchers and support
groups and individuals who have added
positive and constructive comments. I
believe in supporting Judge Gorsuch’s
nomination. We need his kind of integrity
and self-disciplined work ethic in the
new Supreme Court Justice to replace
A.Scalia. He will have to be close to and reliant on the Wisdom that only God can supply in his decision-
making. He must arrive at -through
that God-given Wisdom and in-depth
research the best Constitutionally
backed conclusions that can stand
the test of time and potentially severe scrutiny. From what I have
learned about him in a very short
time, I believe he is the man for this most important job. I am Pro life
because God is…or we wouldn’t be
here. Thanks, Mom & Dad for saying YES on my behalf:).

Nancy Seeley - March 18, 2017

Fabulous review of the judge. Very good. Thank you. Wonderful panel.

Albert (Alberto) Castro Jr - March 18, 2017

I hope Judge Gorsuch continues the legacy of Justice Scalia by also being a strict Constitutionalist.

J Dodge - March 18, 2017

I hope that Mr. Gorsuch will remain true to the intent of the Constitution as our founding Fathers envisioned and not fall pray to trends of the moment. The current social trends are designed to divide us all the more and not unite. Plus, do not the whiners display hate and produce destruction or immoralities?

Vickie Suarez - March 18, 2017

I hope Neil Gorsuch will interpret the Constitution according to its original intent, limit government and protect liberty, and never legislate from the bench. I hope he will, especially, protect the right of parents to direct the care and upbringing of our children without interference from government and other do-gooders.

Peter Schweigert - March 18, 2017

Continue conservatism and LEGALLY apply constitutional and legislated law!!!

Congress needs to be subject to the same laws they pass for their constituents.
We need term limits(3) to “untrench” habitual legislators. Value of retirement should be pegged to No. of terms served.

Scott Hendrie - March 18, 2017

I hope and pray that Judge Gorsuch will adhere to the Founding Fathers’ original intent and ensure that the law is applied in accord with the United States Constitution. I also pray he would be faithful to God in the freedoms He granted us and seek to do right under God, not legislating from the bench, but rightly and humbly judging.

Carl Gebert - March 18, 2017

We need him to help overturn the Obama appointed liberal district & appellant judges opinions that ignore the law. The need is urgent.

Manuel Lemos - March 19, 2017

I believe Judge Gorsuch will enforce the 2nd Amendment which protects our right to keep and bear arms.

G. Allan Barnes - March 19, 2017

Follow, not interpret constitution. Overturn Roe vs Wade. Uphold /defend 2nd Amendment. Rule in favor of privacy laws against Fisa court and NSA et al. Defend America by ruling as the laws say, that the President can determine who can enter US. What would solve current problem,is if they said entry restrictions was for ALL countries. And defund Planned Parenthood.

Arthur Williams - March 19, 2017

Follow the constitution, and the intent of the Founding Fathers.
Correct the Decision that attempted to change “Freedom of Religion”, to “Freedom from Religion”. Any one with an understanding of our founders would and English knows there is a difference between the two words.

Jack Stockdale - March 19, 2017

He will follow and execute laws based on our Constitution.

JOHN AND MEREDITH HALDEMAN - March 20, 2017

Keep political feerlings out of decisions and stick to the intent of our founding fathers when they formulated the Constitution.
Stick to the Judaeo-Christian tone expressed in the Declaration of Independence by the writers and signers as expressed in our national Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag that states, “One Nation Under God”, not Allah.
