Watching C-Span 2 via Internet and monitoring FOX News on TV…
100 US Senators. Previously 60% needed to confirm. Republicans in control of Senate “nuked” the Democrats by changing the rules to only require simple majority to confirm.
Final vote 54-45. Gorsuch is confirmed.
I don’t presently know who didn’t vote.
