Democrats Gear Up for Gorsuch Hearing

Gorsuch confirmation hearing begins today (PBS).  From another story:  While Democratic leaders have revived their public criticism of Neil Gorsuch in recent days, liberal advocacy groups have all but abandoned efforts to defeat his nomination through public opinion — with scant paid issue advertising or public rallies (Fox News).  And another: While supporters of the 49-year-old Colorado appeals court judge say he is calm and reasonable, his confirmation hearings may be anything but (CBS News). Democrats liked him in 2006 (Fox News). From the Wall Street Journal: Democrats have dug up so little on the supremely qualified Supreme Court nominee that they’ll be huffing and puffing and pretending to body slam the judge around the hearing room. It’s mostly political theater (WSJ).
