During this morning’s Politico Playbook breakfast, Senate Majority Leader McConnell powerfully lauded Judge Gorsuch and made clear that he will be confirmed before April’s Senate recess:
ANNA PALMER: Let’s talk about Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. You have been very bullish on his nomination, praising Don McGahn, the White House Counsel. What kind of judge do you think he’ll be, why are so supportive of him being appointed?
SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL: Well look at his record. I think the President, to his credit, and his team, found the single most outstanding circuit judge in America. It is very, very hard to argue against Judge Gorsuch.”
