BREAKING – Neil Gorsuch Confirmed to the Supreme Court

Judge Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed by the Senate to the Supreme Court.

Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the Senate today in a 54-45 vote. The vote was primarily on party line, however; three Democrats voted for Gorsuch: Sens. Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Donnelly.

Vice President, Mike Pence presided over the vote.

Senate Republicans ignited the ‘nuclear option’ earlier this week in order to circumvent the 60 votes needed to confirm Gorsuch.
