Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced today that he will oppose Neil Gorsuch's nomination for Supreme Court and spearhead a filibuster against President Trump's pick.

Should Democrats move to stall the nomination, Republicans will effectively need 60 votes to confirm the 49-year-old conservative judge. Schumer argued that Trump should pull the nomination if Gorsuch cannot reach 60 votes.
