Denver Broncos general manager John Elway has urged the Senate judiciary committee to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the u.s. supreme court in an endorsement letter written on official team letterhead. "I firmly believe the Constitution is a living document that evolves as our country evolves", she said, adding that if some justices had not treated it as such, we would still have segregated schools and unequal protections for women. Pressure has been mounting on democrats to give Gorsuch the "Garland treatment" - that is not to vote to confirm the judge for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the vacated seat by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
President Trump has said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) should consider the so-called "nuclear-option", wherein he would change the rules and allow a vote to proceed without the bipartisan 60-vote requirement, if Democrats slow the process.
While Gorsuch has not ruled directly on abortion, "his writings do raise questions", Feinstein said.
"It is with my highest recommendation that I support Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the United States Supreme Court", Elway wrote on official Broncos letterhead.
"We can not have a Supreme Court that continues to tilt in favor of corporations", she said, pointing to the effects of the so-called "Citizen's United" decision as an example.
A member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Blumenthal will be questioning Gorsuch at his confirmation hearing this week. Senators will cite some opinion of yours, and then we will hear that you're for the big guy and against the little guy. In 2006, the Senate confirmed him to a seat on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

"We have chosen Judge Neil Gorsuch, a man of incredible skill, and deep devotion to the law", Trump said last month during an address to a joint session of Congress. Dianne Feinstein said in her opening remarks as the top Democrat on the committee.
Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., also claimed that Gorsuch was selected by special interest groups rather than by the president in consultation with the Senate. Judge Gorsuch tied this back to his original comment that companies need to ask these question in order to protect themselves against the female employees.
On Monday, Gorsuch will have to sit through 10-minute statements from each of the 20 members of the committee, which will take several hours.
Mogul and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned D.C. Democrats to avoid the obstructionist tactics used by Republicans against Obama SCOTUS pick Merrick Garland. They also took shots at Trump himself, and criticized the fact that Gorsuch appeared on a list of potential Supreme Court nominees vetted by the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation. Be that as it may, as many, many outlets, including pro-abortion liberal publications, acknowledge, the Republicans were under no obligation to hold confirmation hearings on him previous year.
