It’s Official: Judge Neil Gorsuch Has Been Confirmed

Source: RedState | April 7, 2017 | Martin Walsh

The Senate confirmed Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch on Friday, giving Republicans a much needed win politically and in their quest to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Gorsuch clinched the majority threshold with a 54-45 vote on Friday after House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rewrote chamber rules that eliminated the 60-vote filibuster and allowed for a 51-vote majority.

Only three Democrats voted in favor of Gorsuch: Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana), Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota), and Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia).



Gorsuch is expected to take the oath on Monday.

    Well, glad that drama is over. Now on to a new one.

    Let’s just see how conservative this new justice is. I’ve heard he’s a strict constitutionalist, but I suspect the court in reality gained another Roberts.

    I hope you are wrong about that Everyday. But I wouldn’t be surprised any more:(

    If he does turn out to be a good SCJ at least we got something out of this trainwreck.

    It’s just that I remember glowing reports about Roberts. Then he wrote that idiotic opinion retaining Obamacare. A constitutionalist, Roberts isn’t.

    Time will tell. Who knows that this whole drama wasn’t instituted to make it look like he was all we asked for, only to find it is the switch & bait candidate.

    Pray for righteousness to be restored and for the peace of Jerusalem
