It is nice to see when Democrats have common sense.
Two Democratic senators admitted earlier in the week that they will likely vote in favor of President Trump’s next Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch.
Both Sens. Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp said they will vote for Gorsuch.
“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.”
See Manchin’s statement in the video below:
“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.”
