Ann Wagner Statement on the Confirmation of Neil Gorusch

For Immediate Release: April 7, 2017

BALLWIN, MISSOURI – Ann Wagner (R-Ballwin) released the following statement on the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court of the United States.

“It’s disappointing that the confirmation process for Judge Neil Gorsuch has devolved into a partisan display of parliamentary bickering. Missourians understand the importance of filling this seat and it is clear that Judge Gorsuch has the appropriate temperament, expertise and proven record of impartiality.

“Last fall, countless Missourians told me how important this Supreme Court vacancy was to them and how they wanted a jurist who shares our principled, conservative values. There’s nothing moderate or reasonable about the Democrats’ filibuster of Judge Neil Gorsuch. Sen. McCaskill just forfeited a great opportunity to demonstrate her ability to work across the aisle and I believe Missouri deserves better from their senior Senator.”
