Gorsuch confirmed: Cardin, Van Hollen vote NO

April 7th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice by the Senate on Friday, with President Donald Trump’s high-court pick approved largely along party lines after a controversial rules change a day earlier. Senators voted 54 to 45 to confirm Gorsuch, who Trump nominated in January to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia joined Republicans in voting for Gorsuch. Maryland Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen both voted against the confirmation.
