Senate Democrats have enough votes to filibuster the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court, making them the first party in history to ever stage a partisan filibuster. However, the development only increases the likelihood that the Republican Senate majority will deploy the so-called “nuclear option” to ensure Judge Gorsuch is confirmed.

People’s Pundit Daily will update the whip count below if and when votes change. Joined by 3 Democrats thus far, Republicans have enough votes to confirm Judge Gorsuch in an up or down vote. But Democrats will try to filibuster a procedural vote known as cloture, which is simply a motion to end debate and move to the up or down vote to confirm.
