Several key Democrats are keeping their votes to themselves days before a showdown over Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.
Gorsuch needs 60 votes to end a filibuster backed by most Democrats, meaning the GOP needs to pick off eight members of the minority.
If Democrats block Gorsuch, Republicans promise to go “nuclear,” ordering a vote to change the Senate’s rules to allow his nomination to go forward on a majority vote.
Some voices on the left and the right appear to be hoping for such an outcome, though a group of centrist Democrats is trying to ward off that showdown. They are warning fellow Democratic senators that their party should not filibuster Gorsuch, warning it could lead to eliminating the filibuster for legislation.
