On Capitol Hill, Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch, who pledged to be fair, not political in his Senate Confirmation Hearing today.
After being sworn in by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley, Gorsuch delivered his opening statement, thanking the committee and his family, also taking time to stop and give his wife a hug.
Gorsuch, who is 49 years old, serves on the 10th US Circuit Court of appeals in Denver.
He talked about his views of the bench, and his record.
"as a judge now for more than a decade, i have watched my colleagues spend long days worrying over cases. Sometimes the answers we reach aren't ones we would personally prefer. Sometimes the answers follow us home and keep us up at night. But the answers we reach are always the ones we believe the law requires. For all its imperfections, the rule of law in this nation truly is a wonder - and it is no wonder that it is the envy of the world," Neil Gorsuch.
Questioning begins tomorrow. Chairman Grassley expects the committee to vote April 3rd, with a senate floor vote later that week. The confirmation hearing is happening 13 months after Justice Antonin Scalia died, creating a vacancy on the supreme court.
