Dems Pushing McConnell to “Go Nuclear” for Gorsuch

A few years ago, Harry Reid eliminated the need for 60 votes for all appointment except for the Supreme Court. If the Democrats decide to force the 60 vote threshold by staging a filibuster, McConnell will change the rule to allow an up or down vote, guaranteed. Gorsuch is going on the Supreme Court.

Senate Democrats are beginning to line up against Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, increasing the chances the Senate will enact a “nuclear option” that would thwart the minority filibuster for high court picks, the Washington Examiner reported.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., the minority leader, announced he would vote against Gorsuch, an expected move, but one that could set the tone for rank-and-file Democrats on the fence about his nomination.

Sens. Bob Casey, D-Pa., Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and Tom Carper, D-Del., also announced opposition to Gorsuch, and the list is likely to grow significantly.

At least eight Democrats are needed to end a filibuster party lawmakers have announced against Gorsuch, who is now serving as a judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

So far, not one Senate Democrat has pledged to vote in favor of him, although some red-state Democrats up for re-election in 2018 may have a difficult time rejecting him.
