"I was devastated", Perkins said of Gorsuch's ruling.
Graham said he hopes Republicans do not use the nuclear option to get Gorsuch's confirmation votes. Graham said he simply would not tolerate Democrats denying President Trump, the victor of the 2016 election, the opportunity to put well-qualified judges on the Supreme Court. It is not hyperbole to call the seat stolen.
Currently, Republicans hold control of the Senate with 52 seats to the Democrats 46 ( Angus King of ME and Bernie Sanders of Vermont listed as Independent), however they would need to pick up at least 8 more votes to overrule and end the filibuster which that was threatened by the Senator from NY.

"There might be some hesitancy to getting rid of the filibuster", Masket said. So I am proud to represent the voices and values of Washington state workers and families and stand with them and against the nomination of Judget Gorsuch. According to the Post, now-Justice Samuel Alito is the only Supreme Court nominee to face a cloture vote in past 47 years.
Witnesses include a range of supporters, like retired federal judges, law professors and former law clerks of Gorsuch's. "Luke's case is a poignant example of how real people's lives have been harmed by Gorsuch's extreme ideology on the bench".
If at least eight Democrats join the 52 Republicans and back Gorsuch, that will provide the 60 votes needed to pass a procedural motion letting the Senate move quickly to an up-or-down vote on his nomination, with only a simple majority for approval.
