This article is more than 3 years old.

The Senate this week is expected to vote on the nomination of President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch. Democrats now have enough votes to filibuster, and Republicans are saying that if they do, they will trigger the "nuclear option," and unilaterally change the rules to allow Gorsuch to be confirmed with a simple 51-vote majority.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with NPR congressional reporter Scott Detrow (@scottdetrow) about where things stand on Gorsuch's confirmation.
