PA GOP Statement on Senator Casey’s Opposition to Judge Gorsuch’s Nomination

HARRISBURG — Today, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio released the following statement on Senator Bob Casey’s decision to oppose Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination:

“Senator Casey has again aligned himself with the far left. In choosing to oppose Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination, Bob Casey is directly disrespecting the will of Pennsylvania voters. These voters gave President Trump the chance to nominate Judge Gorsuch — a mainstream conservative who American Bar Association unanimously gave its highest rating of ‘well-qualified.’

“More concerning, Bob Casey has not stated whether or not he will join the Senate Democrats’ filibuster attempt to deny Judge Gorsuch an up or down vote by the entire Senate. This obstructionist approach to governing will not forgotten by Pennsylvania voters when they go to the polls in 2018.”

— Val DiGiorgio, Chairman, Republican Party of Pennsylvania
