2 Democrats will be adults and break party lines to vote for SCOTUS Nominee Neil Gorsuch. Senators Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp whale both publically stated they will give the Coloradan Justice their support.

Joe Manchin: “Senators have a constitutional obligation to advice (sic) and consent on a nominee to fill this Supreme Court vacancy and, simply put, we have a responsibility to do our jobs as elected officials,” Manchin said in a statement Thursday. “I will vote to confirm him to be the ninth justice on the Supreme Court.”

Senator Heitkamp: “After doing my due diligence by meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his record and testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I’ve decided to vote in favor of his confirmation. He has a record as a balanced, meticulous, and well-respected jurist who understands the rule of law,”.

It’s great to see a couple sane and reasonable Democrats vote their conscious.
