Supporters of Colorado Judge Neil Gorsuch to be appointed a Supreme Court justice rallied Thursday at the state Capitol to show their support.

Led by Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and other local leaders, the Republicans received scant attention because the media is too busy covering Democrat protests disguised as town hall meetings to bash Republicans.

But CBS4 News covered the event and had this to report:

“Judge Gorsuch is an extremely well qualified and respected U.S. Supreme Court nominee. He not only has a brilliant legal mind, but he has both the experience and the temperament needed to serve on our nation’s highest court,” said Coffman.

Meanwhile, the Denver Post sort of reports that support is growing for Gorsuch in the legal powerhouse community.

Norm Brownstein and Steve Farber, two giants in Colorado’s legal and political world, joined with dozens of attorneys from the state this week in signing a letter to U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner urging them to support the confirmation of conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dozens? We counted about 215 signatures on the letter.

“We hold a diverse set of political views as Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. Many of us have been critical of actions taken by President Trump. Nonetheless, we all agree that Judge Gorsuch is exceptionally well qualified to join the Supreme Court. He deserves an up or down vote.”

Bennet has been missing in action on the question of supporting Gorsuch, who was nominated weeks ago to fill the post, because he spent the congressional work period in Cuba.

With the Senate confirmation hearings set to start on March 20, it’s time for Bennet to man-up and tell Coloradans whether or not he will support the Denver native for the Supreme Court.
