2 Dems Announce Support For Trump’s SCOTUS Pick

2 Dems Announce Support For Trumps SCOTUS PickTwo Democratic senators โ€” Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota โ€” said Thursday that they would vote to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Manchin, who frequently crosses the aisle to side with the GOP, said he found Gorsuch to be “an honest and thoughtful man,” and that he had “not found any reasons why this jurist should not be a Supreme Court justice.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) will not support Gorsuch and has urged Democrats to block an up-or-down vote on Trump’s nominee. Manchin and Heitkamp gave Republicans two of the eight Democratic votes they need to sidestep a filibuster.
