Harry Reid: Roberts Has ‘Suitable Legal Credentials’

(The following is a statement issued by Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid of Nevada on Tuesday about the nomination of John G. Roberts, Jr., to the Supreme Court.)

The President has made his choice.√?‚?? ¬† Now the Senate will do its job of deciding whether to confirm John Roberts to a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court.

The President has chosen someone with suitable legal credentials, but that is not the end of our inquiry.√?‚?? ¬† The Senate must review Judge Roberts√?¬Ę√Ę‚??¬¨√Ę‚??¬Ęs record to determine if he has a demonstrated commitment to the core American values of freedom, equality and fairness.√?‚?? ¬† The nominee will have an opportunity to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and make his case to the American people.

I will not pre-judge this nomination.√?‚?? ¬† I look forward to learning more about Judge Roberts.
