WASHINGTON - The Senate on Friday confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, giving President Trump the biggest victory of his first 100 days in office. Neither of Illinois' U.S. Senators voted for Gorsuch, although three Dems did.
The 54-45 vote caps a bitter political battle that began with the death of Justice Antonin Scalia more than a year ago and resulted in the Senate triggering the so-called “nuclear option” to block the Democrats’ ability to filibuster Gorsuch.
