Powered by Topple

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch honored his wife at his Senate confirmation hearing, pausing his remarks to give her a hug.

During his opening remarks to the Judiciary Committee on Monday, Gorsuch paid tribute to his wife of more than twenty years and the sacrifices she made to help him.

“Mr. chairman, I could not even attempt to do this without Louise,” he said, turning to his wife seated behind him. “The sacrifices she has made and her open and giving heart, they leave me in awe.”

“I love you so much,” he said, reaching out to her to hug her as she stood and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

He then told about their early years as newlyweds and their “tiny apartment” as well as sending a message of love to his daughters watching from the West coast.

Gorsuch, President Trump’s pick to fill the Supreme Court seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia who died in 2016, will continue Senate confirmation hearings on Tuesday.
