Former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez told reporters on Wednesday that he is mulling over the prospects of launching a Senate run against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) in the 2018 election.
Massachusetts is a reliably blue state in most national elections, but its outspoken Democratic senator has seen her approval ratings drop among voters who approve of their Republican governor by a wide margin.
Senate Democrats on Thursday may be reflecting on the phrase “what goes around, comes around” after their Republican colleagues went nuclear with Senate filibuster rules.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) has had a change of heart when it comes to using the nuclear option in the Supreme Court.
At least 41 Senate Democrats have said they will oppose President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, as of Monday afternoon, enough to filibuster his nomination and set up a showdown with Republicans over using the so-called “nuclear option.”
Several major mainstream newspapers have published editorials encouraging President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Judge Neil Gorsuch, to be confirmed while criticizing Senate Democrats’ efforts to filibuster his nomination.
