Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an interview that Gorsuch’s experience was a significant ingredient to the successful confirmation process.
“I think it all starts with a good nominee,” Lee said. “I think it’s a really helpful ingredient. This nominee was really good at answering questions and talking about the role of the judge.”
Jeremy Adler is communications director of the conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared, or AR2, which worked with Gorsuch’s team to ensure his confirmation. The judge’s qualifications were a significant aid to conservatives in ensuring a smooth confirmation process, Adler said.
“The person that the president chose is so beyond reproach, and that made all of our jobs much easier,” Adler said.
