Over 13 months since the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, the U.S. Senate is set to hold a confirmation hearing for a replacement next week. President Donald Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch (pictured, above) to fill Scalia’s spot on the Supreme Court back in January.

On Wednesday, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R- Texas) spoke in the Senate in favor of a speedy confirmation process for Judge Gorsuch.

“Judge Gorsuch will also bring decades of experience on the bench, as I mentioned a moment ago. He served in private practice, as well as an attorney with the Justice Department and, of course, as a federal judge.

“It’s time to move forward with the President’s nominee to fill the seat left open by the death of the late Justice Scalia, and I believe that Judge Gorsuch is just the man to fill it. And I look forward to hearing from him next week as we consider his nomination to this important position,” said Senator Cornyn.

Both Senator Cornyn and Senator Ted Cruz (R- Texas) have been proponents of Gorsuch’s SCOTUS confirmation.
