Senator Donnelly Noncommittal After Meeting with Judge Gorsuch

Donnelly - Gorsuch

Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly met with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch on Tuesday.

However, he remained non-committal as to whether he will support Gorsuch’s nomination.

Gorsuch was nominated by President Donald Trump to replace Justice Antonin Scalia who died in 2016.

According to a press release from Donnelly’s press office, the two talked about Gorsuch’s experience as a judge, his judicial philosophy and his thoughts on judicial independence.

Following the meeting, Donnelly issued a statement saying he will continue to carefully review Judge Gorsuch’s record and qualifications in the coming weeks and will be following his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
