The Democrats’ conundrum when it comes to the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was put succinctly by one of his home-state papers, The Colorado Springs Gazette, which joined the Denver Post in urging Democratic Senator Michael Bennet to support the well-qualified nominee. The paper’s editorial board wrote this:
If Bennet wants to show more unwavering loyalty to the Democratic Party, he will do as requested by minority leadership. If he wants to do right by Colorado, he will make Gorsuch the only Coloradan on the Supreme Court since Byron “Whizzer” White.
That’s the question facing every Democrat. Will they do right by the American people and support Judge Gorsuch, or will they put party loyalty above their constituents?
