Gorsuch’s strong performance even wins over mainstream media, Dems

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch won over conservatives with his standout record, but his impeccable performance in Senate hearings this week has earned the judge praise from media figures and some Democrats as well.

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee grilled Gorsuch during the week over his prior rulings and ...
