“Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) says he will vote to confirm federal appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch, becoming the third Democratic senator to back President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.
“After meeting with Judge Gorsuch, conducting a thorough review of his record, and closely following his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I believe that he is a qualified jurist who will base his decisions on his understanding of the law and is well-respected among his peers,” Donnelly said in a statement released on Sunday.
The moderate Democratic senator said he was “deeply disappointed” at how Republicans refused to consider Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama’s nominee to the high court, but that as a senator, he could “only vote on the nominee that comes to the Senate floor.”
Donnelly also said he supported retaining a 60-vote threshold for Supreme Court nominees.”*
