Senate showdown looms over Trump's Supreme Court pick

Senate showdown looms over Trump's Supreme Court pickUS President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick won approval Monday from a Senate panel, but a historic showdown loomed as Democrats secured enough votes to block the nomination. The growing opposition to Neil Gorsuch by Democrats means Republicans are likely to ram through a deeply controversial change to Senate rules in order to ensure his confirmation as the next Supreme Court justice. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-9 along strict party lines to send the nomination of Gorsuch, a federal appellate judge, to the full Senate.
