President Nominates Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court

WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is pledging to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and the laws of the United States.    

U.S. Appeals Court Judge Neil Gorsuch is also thanking Trump for giving him a ``most solemn assignment.''    
If confirmed by the Senate, Gorsuch would succeed Justice Antonin Scalia, whose death nearly a year ago created a vacancy on the nine-member court.    

But Gorsuch's selection is expected to spark a fierce fight with Democrats.
