gorsuchThe Republican US Senate has invoked the nuclear option, thus essentially guaranteeing Judge Neil Gorsuch becoming the next US Supreme Court Justice, replacing Anthony Scalia, who died last year.

The decision by the Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans came in response to the Democrats filibuster which denied the sixty-vote majority to confirm Gorsuch.
