They are going Nuclear!

 

The 52-48 vote to trigger the nuclear option was strictly along party lines. Republicans proceeded with that vote after Democrats earlier were successful in upholding their filibuster of the judge’s confirmation process. They then voted 55-45 to move to vote Friday on Gorsuch’s confirmation, which now will require only a simple majority. The Democrats on Monday had secured enough support to block the judge after weeks of threatening to filibuster over Gorsuch—President Donald Trump’s pick for the high court.
