It is Official: (Photo Credit:  AP Photo/Evan Vucci)  The judge becomes Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch!  Congratulations to Justice Gorsuch and to President Donald J. Trump who understood how important it is to have men of his stature on the US Supreme Court.  Chairman Long had this to say in a recent interview on Justice Gorsuch.
