Senate Democrats on Monday pushed a key committee vote for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch into next week, setting in motion a major showdown over his Senate confirmation.
Senate Democrats on Thursday vowed to filibuster the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, signaling an imminent partisan showdown over the nominee’s fate and the future of century-old rules in the chamber.
Democrats plan a filibuster against Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, setting up a Senate fight that they are almost certain to eventually lose.
Examining a nominee for a lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court is one of the Senate's highest responsibilities. But while Americans across the country are eager to know where Neil Gorsuch stands on fundamental rights, Republican Senators questioned the nominee about his hobbies, like his favorite fishing spots and his preference for skiing.
As Neil Gorsuch faces a grilling in the Senate Judiciary Committee later Tuesday, liberal groups mobilizing against him are accelerating the pressure against Democratic senators with a new digital ad campaign urging them to filibuster the Supreme Court nominee.
