Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - Press Release

Madison – Governor Scott Walker released the following statement tonight after President Donald J. Trump announced Judge Neil M. Gorsuch as his nominee for the United States Supreme Court:

Judge Neil Gorsuch is an outstanding nominee; a jurist committed to a textualist and originalist judicial philosophy.

Judge Gorsuch meets these criteria.
