Liberal groups are firing off yet another warning to Senate Democrats in the heated battle over Neil Gorsuch, urging the senators to ramp up their fight against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee ahead of the confirmation hearings next week.
Judge Gorsuch is as extreme a nominee as we've seen in generations. If confirmed, Gorsuch could represent the deciding vote on President Trump's most discriminatory, corporate-friendly policies, including voter suppression, the Muslim Ban, and Trump's looming threat to the rights of women and LGBTQ Americans.
“A trucker was stranded on the side of the road, late at night, in cold weather, and his trailer brakes were stuck,” wrote appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch, last August, in a dissenting opinion that is apt to come up at his confirmation hearings next week for the open seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.
A broad coalition of abortion-rights groups will call on senators to oppose Neil Gorsuch at all costs in an effort to stoke liberal opposition to the Supreme Court nominee just days before his consequential confirmation hearings.
Today, the largest grassroots groups in the country joined together to launch “The People’s Defense” — a massive grassroots campaign with actions planned in all 50 states to defeat Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
