On Wednesday, Sen. Cory Booker will be meeting with President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch.
Following Trump’s announcement, Booker released this statement: “Based on what I have read of his past rulings and statements, I believe that Judge Gorsuch’s interpretation of the Constitution falls far outside of the mainstream and I question whether he will put the interests of working families in New Jersey and throughout the country before those of big corporations, or adequately protect the rights of women, minorities, and our LGBTQ brothers and sisters.”
However, in March 2016 during an interview on NJTV News, Booker said if a Republican president nominated a justice at the federal level, he would be calling for “an up-or-down vote. To not do so is violative of the United States Constitution.”
It will be interesting to see if Booker sticks with past statements or yet again tries to position himself for a 2020 presidential run by blocking an up-or-down vote following his meeting with Judge Gorsuch.
