This morning, the Senate convenes and will vote to invoke cloture on the Neil Gorsuch nomination. Unlike the Cabinet nominations we have tracked, Supreme Court nominations currently require sixty votes for cloture to end debate. The Democrats have the votes to filibuster under the current rules. So this vote will fail this morning, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will go through the motions to invoke the nuclear option. That will be tracked separately, and then a final cloture vote will be held after the rule change.
This post will be updated as each Senator casts, be sure to refresh for latest tally.
Democrats hit 41 nay- under current rules, filibuster.
CLOTURE MOTION HAS FAILED (under current rules)
McConnell changes his vote to no, so the cloture motion can be brought up again.
Motion for re-vote (under 60 vote rule)
THAT motion fails. 55-45 y/n so far
Schumer asks for a vote to delay the nomination and resume at 3pm on Monday April 24th
THAT vote: 48-52 FAILS
