Colorado Sens. Gardner and Bennet will introduce Neil Gorsuch at onset of SCOTUS confirmation

DENVER – Colorado Sens. Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet will introduce  Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch  to the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday to kick of his confirmation hearings.

It’s customary for the senators of the states in which the nominated judge hails from to introduce them before the committee. Gorsuch is from Colorado and has worked as a judge on the Tenth Circuit since he was confirmed in 2006.

Gardner says he will support Gorsuch’s confirmation.

“A fellow Coloradan, Judge Gorsuch is an exceptional jurist who will bring a Western perspective to the Supreme Court. I enthusiastically support his nomination and I look forward to introducing him at his upcoming hearing,” he said in a statement.

Bennet will also introduce Gorsuch, though he has not taken a stance on whether or not he supports Gorsuch’s confirmation.

Denver7 is set to interview Gardner ahead of the introduction Monday morning, Leave comments for questions for him on the Denver7 Facebook page.
