Senate Democrats are making public their planned votes for opposing or supporting Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court. The Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate, and they would need 60 votes to avoid a filibuster that could block the confirmation.
As of Monday morning, three Democrats have said they will support Gorsuch and 39 senators have said they will oppose his nomination. Of those 39, already 37 have said they will support a filibuster. That leaves the Republicans five votes short of stopping, and the Democrats four votes shy of invoking, the procedural block.
