The conservative group America Rising, meanwhile, assailed Casey’s announcement and the Democrats’ decision to filibuster the nomination.
“By opposing an up-or-down vote on Judge Gorsuch, it is clear that Senator Casey cares more about appeasing far-left activists threatening his re-election this year than he does the views of most Pennsylvanians,” the group’s executive director, Brian Rogers, said. “Through three days of Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing, no Democrat has questioned his qualifications to serve on the Court with great distinction. Yet Sen. Casey is ignoring these sterling credentials and the wide bipartisan support for Judge Gorsuch and going so far as to deny him an up-or-down vote in order to curry favor with liberals who continue to push the Democratic Party further and further left.”
