McConnell is ready with the “nuclear option” to allow a 50 vote majority instead of 60 votes, and he will do what it takes to get Gorsuch confirmed.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced his expected plans to vote “no” on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court and promised that Republicans would have to overcome a Democratic filibuster in order to seat him, the Washington Examiner reported.
“I have come to a decision after careful deliberation. I have concluded that I cannot support Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” the New York Democrat said Thursday.
Schumer went on to say that Gorsuch will have to overcome a “cloture vote” and “earn his confirmation.”
