    Trump nominates 'brilliant' Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court - making him the youngest candidate in 25 years and firing the starting gun on a bitter battle with the Democrats

    • President Donald Trump announced his selection of Gorsuch, 49, to fill the vacancy created by the death last year of Justice Antonin Scalia
    • Gorsuch is an Appeals Court judge on the 10th Circuit in Denver
    • Trump hailed his qualifications as 'beyond dispute'
    • Losing out to Gorsuch was Judge Thomas Hardiman of Pittsburgh
    • Democratic leader Sen. Charles Schumer vowed to oppose a pick 'tooth and nail' that wasn't part of the 'mainstream'
    • President Obama's pick to replace Scalia, Judge Merrick Garland, never got a hearing or a vote from Republicans who control the Senate.

    Why Democrats should hold the line and filibuster against Neil Gorsuch

    upload_2017-2-1_12-39-34.png

    In nominating Neil Gorsuch to the supreme court, Donald Trump just gave Senate Republicans exactly what they’ve long hoped for in filling Antonin Scalia’s vacant seat – and Democrats should do everything in their power to stop it.

    It’s not that Gorsuch’s record is significantly more problematic than that of anyone else on Trump’s shortlist (he is, in many ways, merely Scalia’s ideological twin). It’s that Scalia’s successor should have rightfully been Obama’s to choose, and Democrats should return the favor by pushing Republicans to the legal limit, including making
    Republicans eliminate the filibuster on supreme court nominations.
