The Senate Judiciary Committee sent the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court to the full Senate for consideration with an 11-to-9 vote. This Friday, the Senate will begin the full confirmation vote on the floor. Democrats are looking towards a filibuster for Judge Gorsuch’s nomination. The Republicans are likely to vote to change Senate practices later within the week so that Judge Gorsuch can be approved with a simple majority vote before their recess period. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has hinted at Republicans pursuing a nuclear option to eliminate the potential filibuster.
Please continue to pray for Judge Gorsuch and his family and for the entire U.S. Senate during this Supreme Court Justice nomination process.
