From what I can gather, Mr. Gorsuch seems to be a good choice to fill the seat vacated by the death of Antonin Scalia. As a judge of the U.S. 10th District Court of Appeals, he ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby against the ACA gremlins that tried to force them to provide contraceptives for employees. In his acceptance speech this evening, he decried the de facto legislation that progressive judges do from the bench. Conservative Review has other highlights about him.
Many pro-life groups (see here and here for example) express hope for this nominee. Of course he faces a rigorous Senate hearing, particularly in light of some of the Democratic temper tantrums that have been occurring. We need to pray and lobby our senators to confirm him.
Now let me say a word to my #nevertrump friends. If you had your way several months ago, this quality nomination would have remained a far-distant dream of ours. Indeed, can one imagine the scoundrel that Clinton might have nominated, if you had your way? Alright, I didn't merely have a word with you; it's a rebuke but one you earned. I hope you are learning your lessons.
