Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination hearings

Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination hearings

"The high burden of proof that Judge Gorsuch has to meet is largely a result of the president who nominated him", Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from CT who sits on the committee, said last week at an event featuring several plaintiffs who lost cases that came before Gorsuch. However, even if Democrats did attempt to derail Gorsuch's confirmation through a filibuster Republicans could resort to using the so-called "nuclear-option," voting to remove either the filibuster rule or the super-majority requirement for SCOTUS confirmations. Gorsuch wrote a dissenting opinion as a three-judge panel ruled previous year that Maddin was wrongly terminated and had to be reinstated with back pay. Cory Gardner, a Republican, and Michael F. Bennet, a Democrat, and by Neal Katyal, a former acting solicitor general under President Obama. There they displayed over a million signatures of people opposed to Gorsuch's nomination.

"Everyone is watching", said Robin Effron, a professor at Brooklyn Law School. Jon Tester and Heidi Heitkamp, respectively, face reelection next year, more than 99.5 percent of all media money spent on the Supreme Court confirmation fight has gone toward supporting Gorsuch. But the GOP-controlled Senate is expected to confirm Gorsuch later this spring.

Truex said today's young drivers are helped by the cooperation between teams in the same ownership group or part of an alliance. Elliott Sadler finished fifth and remained the series points leader. "Like I've been saying, we've never had that speed".

Just four days before Gorsuch appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democratic groups and committees have barely lifted an advertising finger in their quest to sink the nomination. However, the Democrats could signal they're willing to stand up to Gorsuch and Trump if they drill deep into particular aspects of his philosophy, such as whether he really believes the Constitution should be interpreted based on how it was originally understood. Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer has waffled and now gone quiet about the issue. Gorsuch will go before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday for opening statements and questioning.

And in a deft move, Gorsuch showed independence withoutpiercing any White House thin skins when a Democratic senator quoted him as calling Trump's heated rhetorical assault on his fellow federal judges "demoralizing" and "disheartening". But the Democrats can, if they want to, also make him look like the radical extremist he is. "That's why the president has nominated Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court", the narrator confidently exclaims.

"He enacted it time and time again on the 10th Circuit, and if given the chance I have no doubt he would do it again on the Supreme Court".

Some liberals are making a late effort to bolster their paid media: the Constitutional Responsibility Project said Wednesday it would target two Republicans up in 2018, Jeff Flake and Dean Heller, with spots rattling through the less glamorous parts of Gorsuch's judicial record and encouraging voters to call Flake's and Heller's offices.
