On Monday Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats forced a one-week delay before sending Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to the full Senate for approval. Already 17 Democrats in opposition to Gorsuch ARE calling for a filibuster of his nomination while invoking the 60-vote threshold for his approval.
