Gorsuch Moves Closer to Supreme Court Post

The Associated Press reports today that Neil Gorsuch, shows consistency in answering questions by both Democrats and Republicans. The US Supreme Court nominee resisted efforts from Democrats to get him to state how he feels about court rulings on controversial matters such as guns and abortions. Instead, Gorsuch maintained an air of neutrality stating that he leaves his personal views at home and that he decides cases, not political issues. As reported by the AP, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) stated on the first day of the confirmation hearings that Democrats were in no mood to “rubber stamp a nominee selected by extreme interest groups and nominated by a president who lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.” It remains unclear from the report what “extreme interest groups” the senator was referring to and why he would forgo mentioning the electoral process and focus on a popular vote. On the other side of the isle, Republicans appear to support Gorsuch as the Supreme Court nominee and are refraining from political grandstanding.
