Republican Women Pass Resolution of Support at Board Meeting
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – More than 150 Republican women leaders from across the nation gathered at the National Federation of Republican Women’s (NFRW) spring board meeting in Memphis on March 17-18, where they pledged support for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.
The NFRW board unanimously adopted a resolution calling on the U.S. Senate to confirm Gorsuch immediately. Gorsuch, who currently serves on the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, is known as a champion of religious liberty and is considered to be an originalist in his interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. The Senate Judiciary Committee is set to begin hearings on his nomination next week.
“Neil Gorsuch is imminently qualified to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court as Justice Antonin Scalia’s successor,” NFRW President Carrie Almond said. “President Trump is setting a course for a renewed, greater America, and the historic selection of Gorsuch to the Supreme Court will help ensure that our constitutional liberties are protected and preserved for generations to come. Republican women are 100 percent behind this nomination, and we urge the U.S. Senate to confirm Judge Gorsuch without delay.”
