Now, some key Senate Democrats are vowing to filibuster Gorsuch and fight until the bitter end.
Some U.S. senators would do the nation a favor if they pondered who and what they are discussing in this week's confirmation hearings for federal Judge Neil Gorsuch, who has been nominated for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday he would be willing to use the so-called nuclear option if Democrats filibuster President Donald Trump's pick for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch. "Schumer for several weeks now, I think it's pretty clear he's a no vote in search of a reason to vote that way", he said.
Earlier Thursday, Lindsey Graham of SC also signaled that he's willing to confirm Neil Gorsuch with a simple majority. Politics should have no part in the judicial branch, but we have seen radical left-wing judges strike down executive orders from President Trump for matters that have nothing to do with the constitution.
His conservative backers have spent millions on campaigns to exert pressure on 10 Democratic senators facing re-election next year in states Trump won in the presidential election last November. They applaud Judge Neil Gorsuch's adamant stance that he can separate personal opinion from his judicial duties.

We've long stated here that presidents deserve considerable deference for their Supreme Court nominees, regardless of ideology, as long as the individuals display the needed competence.
During the confirmation hearing, Democrats on the committee regularly expressed their anger that President Barack Obama's nomination for a post that was vacated 13 months ago was refused a hearing by Republicans. He said, in choosing to oppose Gorsuch's nomination, Casey is directly disrespecting the will of Pennsylvania voters. The speakers included the father of an autistic boy whom Gorsuch ruled against. The American Bar Association has given him its highest rating.
And in questions concerning the unilateral reinstatement of torture and the welfare of undocumented immigrants, Gorsuch insisted he would follow the letter of the law, which bans torture and affords equal protection even for those in this country illegally.
