Sen. Hirono: ‘I’ve Concluded’ I Won’t Support Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court

‘Neil Gorsuch is not the justice that I would seek to represent all Americans, not just the conservative forces that have spent millions of dollars on his behalf’

EXCERPT:

HIRONO: "Wolf, I want you to know that after four hours of hearings I have concluded that I would not be supporting Neil Gorsuch for this opening. I very much support a 60 votes threshold for someone who’s going to be on the highest court of the land where they will make decisions that will impact all of us for decades to come and Neil Gorsuch is not the justice that I would seek to represent all of Americans, not just the conservative forces that have spent millions of dollars on his behalf."
