Neil Gorsuch Officially Confirmed To The Supreme Court | Zero Hedge

Update: After weeks of endless rhetoric and party bickering over the controversial usage of the ‘nuclear option’, Neil Gorsuch has officially been confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States with a largely partisan vote of 54-45.

Following a series of procedural votes yesterday to invoke the so-called ‘nuclear option’, the Senate is expected to vote shortly to confirm Neil Gorsuch as the 113th justice to serve on the Supreme Court.

Given the rule changes implemented yesterday, Republicans require only a simple majority vote to confirm Gorsuch, and with Republicans holding a 52-48 majority in the Senate, today’s vote is all but a foregone conclusion.  And while it will mostly be a partisan vote, 3 Democrats are also expected to support Gorsuch for a final vote tally of 55-45.

The official roll call can be watched here:
