Supreme Court Nomination 2017

President Trump has put forward Neil Gorsuch to be the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice. The choice follows Senate Republicans’ refusal to consider President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. The new Court is poised to interpret law on pivotal issues – from voting rights, to digital privacy and surveillance, to campaign finance, to the laws that protect minority citizens, and more.

His record indicates a willingness to draw on practical experiences when deciding issues related to fair-trial rights and the balance of power between the prosecution and defense. But it leaves room for debate on how he'll resolve those issues.

The future of the Court for the next generation is up for grabs this election, truly, and the choice couldn’t be more stark.
