Two Democrats have announced they plan on voting for Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Senators Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp have spoken out on Gorsuch and confirmed that it is their obligation to vote yes…Isn’t it great to have politicians who are nonpartisan and vote with integrity? We’re sure Chuck Schumer’s not a happy camper about this…
Joe Manchin stated:
“Senators have a constitutional obligation to advice and consent on a nominee to fill this Supreme Court vacancy and, simply put, we have a responsibility to do our jobs as elected officials,” Manchin said in a statement Thursday. “I will vote to confirm him to be the ninth justice on the Supreme Court.”
Heitcamp of North Dakota also pledged her vote for Gorsuch and released a statement to confirm: “After doing my due diligence by meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his record and testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I’ve decided to vote in favor of his confirmation. He has a record as a balanced, meticulous, and well-respected jurist who understands the rule of law,”.
