Trump to consider appointing new Justice for Supreme Court
Judge Neil Gorsuch of Colorado—known for upholding religious rights in battles against Obamacare—has become the odds favorite for replacing the late Justice Antonin Scalia. This would restore the balance of “power” on the court, shifting the makeup to four conservatives, four liberals, and one middle/swing vote in Justice Kennedy. Gorsuch currently sits on the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. Gorsuch is seen by most as an easier confirmation due to his cool manner and clear legal writing. One way or another, Trump is expected to make his pick earlier next week.
