Supreme Court nominee is well qualified and within the broad judicial mainstream.

One way or another, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reiterated Sunday, Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed this week to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court.
Democrats have good reason to be outraged by the Republicans’ rush to confirm President Trump's nominee. The vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia's death in February 2016, nearly nine months before the election, was rightfully President Obama’s to fill, and Obama nominated a judge — Merrick Garland — with sterling credentials and moderate views.
Yet the Republican-controlled Senate let the Garland nomination die after 293 days, without a vote or even a hearing. No wonder many Democrats are thirsting for payback.
