Mark Matthews (Denver Post)- WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Tuesday nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, a selection that gives the fourth-generation Coloradan a chance to become the state’s first high-court justice since Byron White retired in 1993.
Trump made the announcement during a prime-time address at the White House with the Colorado judge present.
