Senate Dems Opposing Trump Court Pick Grows With Stabenow

U.S. News 

Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan is joining the growing list of Senate Democrats opposing President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. In a statement Tuesday, Stabenow said she can't support Judge Neil Gorsuch, complaining about his "long record of siding with special interests and institutions instead of hard-working Americans." So far, 19 Democrats have announced their opposition, raising the prospects of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changing Senate rules to get Gorsuch confirmed. Republicans hold a 52-48 majority. It takes 60 votes to clear parliamentary hurdles and set up an up-or-down vote on a Supreme Court nominee.
