U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet won’t be one of those Democrats, because he finally came forth and said he won’t support it.
However, history will show that Bennet’s inaction and lack of leadership up to this point is partly to blame for that filibuster.
And with 48 hours left before the vote, Bennet still won’t say whether he will actually vote to support Colorado Judge Neil Gorsuch to the highest court in the land.
The final vote is Friday, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that Gorsuch will be confirmed with our without support from Democrats to end the filibuster.
Bennet has spent more time with Gorsuch than any other senator before the vote to make up his mind.
That he is still concealing how he will vote on the actual confirmation shows that he simply can’t stand up to the pressure in Washington.
It’s the most disappointing and cowardly act we have ever witnessed since Bennet was first elected to the Senate.
He may as well go ahead and announce he won’t be seeking reelection.
