Michael Bloomberg on Neil Gorsuch confirmation: Don't overplay your hand, Democrats
"A native of Colorado, Neil has demonstrated tremendous intelligence, character and fairness while serving for more than a decade on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit", Mr. Elway said.
Sasse, a Republican, expects Democrats and interest groups to mount an aggressive opposition to Gorsuch's confirmation. The seat has gone unfilled as Republicans refused to hear any Obama nominee, hoping to hold out until last year's presidential election concluded. It's unclear when the full Senate will vote on Gorsuch, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was confident the vote would happen by April 7, when the Senate leaves for its Easter recess. The Democrat also noted Gorsuch was nominated by Trump, who lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes. "(This was the approach that guided me in appointing judges to New York City's courts - never once did I ask, or learn, a candidate's party affiliation or political leaning.)", he added.
Trump chose Gorsuch to replace the conservative Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016.
If Gorsuch is confirmed by the Senate, as expected, he would restore a narrow 5-4 conservative majority on the court.
Throughout the opening day of the hearing, Democrats attempted to draw a distinction between what Sen.
"Your nomination is part of a Republican strategy to capture the judicial branch of our government", Durbin told Gorsuch during his remarks.
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch faces hours of questioning from senators as frustrated Democrats are determined to press him on everything from abortion and guns to his independence from President Donald Trump.
Now a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Denver, Gorsuch has ruled in several cases touching on the rights of people with disabilities, a judicial record that many advocacy groups say is worrisome.
Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, highlighted the American Bar Association's unanimous well qualified rating for Gorsuch, noting that Democrats have previously referred to the ABA's rating as the gold standard for evaluating judicial nominees. Yet those assurances likely fell on deaf ears. Cruz finally threw his support behind Trump after getting the nominee to pledge he would only pick his Supreme Court nominee from a list of 21 judges that included Gorsuch.
"Judge Gorsuch may act like a neutral, calm judge, but his record and his career clearly show that he harbors a right-wing, pro-corporate special interest agenda", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said at a recent news conference featuring sympathetic plaintiffs Gorsuch had ruled against.
