Sen. Bill Nelson Will Oppose Neil Gorsuch

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson won’t support Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch. 

Citing concerns about protecting the right to vote and unlimited campaign spending, Florida’s senior senator explained he’ll oppose President Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court.  The Florida Democrat also points to Neil Gorsuch’s record when it comes to lawsuits against employers, noting the so-called frozen trucker case many Democrats have criticized.  The GOP was quick to pounce with the National Republican Senatorial Committee warning Nelson’s position will cost him his seat in 2018.
