Chalk this up as another reason to love Judge Neil Gorsuch and to hope that our legislature does the right thing and confirms this man as our next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
On Monday he faced intense pressure as he sat through his first Senate Judiciary Committee meeting, in the hopes of becoming our next Supreme Court Justice. Even with all of the pressure bearing down on him, Judge Gorsuch remembered to take time out to thank his wife for all that she had done to make sure he had a chance to join the Supreme Court. In an emotional and heartfelt moment he profusely thanked her for all she had done and all she had sacrificed, and then the two shared a long hug and kiss before the packed Senate chamber.
“Mr. Chairman, I could not even attempt to do this without Louise my wife of over 20 years. The sacrifices she has mad and her open and giving heart that leave me in awe. I love you so much.”
