Trump Announces Neil Gorsuch As Supreme Court Nominee

Feb 1, 2017

At a primetime press conference Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump announced appellate court judge Neil Gorsuch as his pick for the Supreme Court. If confirmed, the 49-year-old judge from Colorado would take up the seat left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. 

Gorsuch is a legal conservative, and some Democrats are already pledging to block his confirmation. Host Frank Stasio speaks with Time Warner Cable News Washington Reporter Geoff Bennett about the announcement and reaction.
