With the United States Senate poised to vote next week, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) announced Thursday that she will support Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court.

"After doing my due diligence by meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his record and testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I've decided to vote in favor of his confirmation. He has a record as a balanced, meticulous, and well respected jurist who understands the rule of law," Heitkamp said in a statement, according to CNN. "He has unique and critical experience with tribal sovereignty, Indian law, and public lands issues in the west, and has received the endorsement of numerous tribes and major Native American organizations."
