Cornyn Backs No Filibuster

U.S. Senator John Cornyn issued a statement today urging senators not to filibuster Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch's nomination.

"We know of his intellect. We know of his sterling qualifications and his extensive experience." Cornyn wrote in the statement, "I particularly appreciated his testimony today about access to justice and his concern that people of modest means, low-income, the so-called little guy that our friends across the aisle keep talking about, that the little guy in America is essentially denied access to our courts because it costs so much, and it takes too long."

Cornyn closed the statement by urging Senators not to filibuster the nomination and to allow for an "up or down vote" on Gorsuch's nomination.
