Maryland Republican Party Chairman Dirk Haire Backs Gorsuch
Today, Maryland Republican Party Chairman and Former Legal Counsel Dirk Haire joined attorneys from 31 other state Republican Parties by submitting a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to support President Trump's nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
"The undersigned attorneys represent the various state Republican parties in the roles of General Counsel or Senior Counsel, and believe that Judge Gorsuch embodies an exceptionally qualified scholar of the law that has exhibited respect for our Constitution, including the Separation of Powers and the 10th Amendment," The letter reads in part.
Dirk Haire, Chairman of the Maryland Republican Party, noted that it is important that a Supreme Court Justice knows where the role of a judge ends and the role of Congress begins. "Judge Gorsuch is imminently qualified and has a superb judicial temperament," said Chairman Haire. "Many Republican Senators supported President Obama’s nominations of Justices Sotomayor and Kagan and Democrat Senators should likewise do the same to confirm Judge Gorsuch."
The 36 attorneys that signed the letter serve as counsel to one of 32 state Republican Parties. Some state parties do not have a counsel role or currently have a vacancy in the role.
