Trump Taps Gorsuch for Supreme Court

As reported by Reuters news agency, conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch has been nominated by US President Donald Trump to the Supreme Court. The 49 year old judge from Colorado would reestablish the court’s conservative majority. Senate Democrats have already signaled that they would oppose such an appointment and instead of a simple majority, senate procedures state that 60 votes would now be needed to approve Judge Gorsuch as a supreme court justice. Republicans hold 52 seats in the 100 seat senate.
