Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to begin March 20

Dianne Feinstein. Grassley said he expects the confirmation hearings to last three to four days.

Questioning of Gorsuch will begin March 21.

As such, Gorsuch has disqualified himself from confirmation.

"During the 2016 campaign, far right groups, who have worked to undermine the rights of workers, presented an edict to then-candidate Donald Trump: commit to nominating a justice from our approved list in exchange for our support". That would mean he would have to earn eight votes in addition to the 52 Republican senators.

It remains unclear, however, whether Republicans will be able to get enough Democratic votes to move forward on the nomination.

During their meeting Thursday Mr. Casey told Mr. Gorsuch had concerns about his judicial philosophy and about decisions he believes failed to protect the health and safety of workers and rights of people with disabilities.

"He is well-qualified and respected", Grassley said in a statement. Richard Blumenthal of CT that he found the president's attacks on the judiciary "disheartening" and "demoralizing".

Several have met with him privately and said they will give him a chance to make his case.

Republicans are largely signaling confidence that Trump's pick to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia will see a smooth confirmation given his legal record and his unanimous confirmation to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

A confirmation vote is expected tomorrow for President Trump's choice to run the EPA, another nominee without unanimous Republican support, Maine GOP Senator Susan Collins says she and Scott Pruitt disagree on the role of the agency.
