The wait is finally over. On Tuesday evening, President Trump announced from the White House his nominee to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Trump’s nominee is Judge Neil Gorsuch, a 49-year-old federal appellate judge from Colorado with an impeccable resume.
“Millions of voters said this was the single most important issue for them when they voted for me for president. I am a man of my word,” Trump stated Tuesday.
Reaction from both sides of the aisle was swift, with consensus among conservatives appearing to be positive. But there is also a rising tension surrounding Democrat leaders’ claims that they will put up a good fight over such a critical appointment, with Sen. Charles E. Schumer noting that the ability to filibuster at the Supreme Court level is intact.
