It looks like it is official! Just now, Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and Senator Mike Lee, guaranteed that Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed to the Supreme Court on April 7.
“He’ll be on the floor of the Senate next week and confirmed on Friday,” McConnell told reporters, as Politico puts it in. “We are optimistic that [Democrats] will not be successful in keeping this good man from joining the Supreme Court real soon.”
He still refused to say that he would do it via the “nuclear option”, but he also declined to rule out whipping 50 of his 52 members to change the rules if Democrats deny Gorsuch the required 60 votes to end a filibuster.
“We’re going to get Judge Gorsuch confirmed,” McConnell said. “It’ll really be up to [Democrats] how the process to confirm Judge Gorsuch moves forward,” he concluded.
On the other hand, Senator Mike Lee went on CNN live TV and said the following,
“We are going to get Judge Gorsuch confirmed. This is a good Judge, and we intend to get him confirmed. We will get him confirmed, one way or the other.”

That’s THAT folks!
We sure hope so, because President Trump needs to have the leaders backing him to get our country in order.
