These Are the Democrats Voting Against Neil Gorsuch

Judge Neil Gorsuch's appointment to the Supreme Court could hit a major road block next week when his nomination is expected to reach the Senate floor.

An increasing number of Democrats have announced their opposition to the Supreme Court nominee as well as their support of a Democratic filibuster, which would require 60 senators to overcome.

With Republicans holding 52 seats, they will need at least eight Democrats to vote with them under the current rules to overcome a filibuster and send the nominee forward for a final confirmation vote that would then require a simple majority. Democrats need 41 votes against the nominee to uphold a filibuster.
