Next Week's Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings Will Be a Test for Democrats

Bennet - a Democrat - has not said whether or not he will support Gorsuch, but Republican Gardner says he will.

Gorsuch was recommended for the nomination by the conservative Federalist Society and others during last year's presidential campaign after Senate Republicans blocked former President Barack Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland.

Where does Gorsuch stand on key issues like abortion, gay rights, and gun laws?

Senate confirmation hearings begin Monday for Neil Gorsuch. (Biden suggested then-President Bush wait until after the November election to name someone, but not wait until a new president - as Republicans did last year).

The schedule of the first day will include 10-minute opening statements from members of the Judiciary Committee and Gorsuch's formal introduction by his two-home state senators: Democrat Michael Bennet and Republican Cory Gardner.

Dozens of fellow former law clerks of federal appeals judge David Sentelle have written to the Senate calling for quick confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Ruling in a case known as Thompson R2-J School District v. Luke P., Gorsuch found that the school district had met its obligation under the IDEA to provide a free appropriate public education since the student in question made some progress toward goals, even if the gains were minimal.

Via Peter Marcus of the Colorado Springs Gazette, Broncos executive John Elway sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, endorsing conservative Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

Gorsuch's supporters dispute such criticism and argue that the judge is exceptionally well-qualified by background and temperament, mild-mannered and down to earth, the author of lucid and well-reasoned opinions. What we don't know is 1) whether the Democrats ask him challenging questions, and 2) whether they'll let him get away with not answering them.

Many members of Congress have expressed that they are content with Mr Gorsuch's consistent decision making on the bench, despite disagreeing with him politically.

"I have ruled for disabled students, prisoners, and workers alleging civil rights violations", he said. The filibuster rule when invoked requires 60 of the 100 votes to advance a bill or nomination, contrasted with the simple 51-vote majority that applies in most cases.

In his opening statement, Grassley alluded caustically to Democrats' complaints about judicial independence in the Trump era.

Democrats have struggled with how to handle the Gorsuch nomination, especially since the nominee is hardly a fire-breathing bomb-thrower. Some of them, including Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Jon Tester of Montana, say they are open-minded about Gorsuch.
