Judge Neil Gorsuch was chosen to succeed Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. President Trump’s Supreme Court choice has overwhelming support across the board.
Below is a list of Democrats that supported Gorsuch’s confirmation in 2006 per Daily Caller.
Former President Barack Obama
Former Vice President Joe Biden
Former Sen. Harry Reid
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary
Sen. Maria Cantwell
Sen. Tom Carper
Sen. Patrick Leahy
Sen. Robert Menendez
Sen. Patty Murray
Sen. Bill Nelson
Sen. Jack Reed
Sen. Debbie Stabenow
Sen. Ron Wyden
Since then, Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon has changed his mind. He said that Gorsuch “harkens back to the days when politicians restricted a people’s rights on a whim.”
No senator who believes individual rights are reserved to the people, not the government, can support Gorsuch’s nomination.

A few Democrats are attempting a filibuster.
When elevated to the 3rd sircuit, Gorsuch was not at all a controversial choice. He was confirmed with a voice vote. Many of those same people who took place in that vote are now looking to stop him. That said, the choice has been made and the people have spoken. Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. There was not even a single dissenting vote.
