Senate Democrats vow to block Trump's Supreme Court pick
Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin, facing re-election in Wisconsin next year, also opposes the nomination, a spokesman said. He added, "If a judge can't 60 votes, you don't change the rules, you change the judge or the nominee".
If Senate Republicans do agree and decide to "go nuclear", they could eliminate senators' ability to filibuster Supreme Court nominations, ending Democrats' filibuster of Gorsuch. "But Judge Gorsuch didn't convince me that he would be an independent voice on the court".
Trump has called on Senate Republicans to change the long-standing rules in order to allow a simple majority vote on confirmation if Democrats mount a filibuster.
"This is a judge so well-qualified and highly-regarded that his nomination to his current post was approved unanimously - the aye votes included Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and yes, Chuck Schumer - so their current grave objections can pretty obviously be chalked up to 'We hate Trump!"
"In a statement released Friday, Reed said he is concerned that Gorsuch's "pro-corporate tendencies" would make justice hard for workers and consumers".
