The biggest story in politics this week is whether or not Judge Neil Gorsuch will be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Democrats are promising are filibuster.  Republicans are suggesting they have the votes to change Senate rules to overcome the filibuster.

Today, Mitch McConnell dropped a huge hint about the future of this standoff.

He has the votes for the “nuclear option”.

From Washington Examiner:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that there are enough Republican votes to invoke the “nuclear option” and seat Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court by changing Senate precedent to end the filibuster for high court nominees.

“We’re moving forward with the Gorsuch nomination for the Supreme Court, which should be wrapped up some time Friday,” McConnell told reporters Tuesday afternoon. “It appears as if cloture will not be invoked, but we’ll find out on Thursday. But either way, we’ll be moving to confirming Judge Gorsuch on Friday.”

Asked if Republicans have enough GOP votes within their conference to go nuclear, McConnell said only: “Uh, yeah.”

The plot thickens…
