Senate Democrats continue their obstructionist pattern. Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee forced a one-week delay in sending the nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the full Senate.
The Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to have a committee vote for Gorsuch on March 27, with a full Senate vote on April 3.
Now, the full Senate vote will not take place until April 5.
“Like all their tactics so far, the Senate Democrats cannot actually stop the confirmation vote from occurring, but they are doing their best to make the process as long and as painful as possible,” Rachel Bovard, director of policy services at The Heritage Foundation and a former Senate aide, told The Daily Signal in an email.
