The Daily 202: Neil Gorsuch could help cement Republican majorities for a generation

via Gregory Basta

“Most of the coverage about Neil Gorsuch now focuses on Senate rules and the procedures for changing them. While important, the underlying reasons that both sides are so willing to allow a nuclear confrontation have been lost or obscured in most news stories… Gorsuch, once confirmed, will be well positioned to provide the decisive vote on a host of issues that might help cement this Republican hold on power, or at least give the party a leg up in future elections. He could vote to allow states to restrict voting, give more leeway to partisans in the round of redistricting that will begin after the 2020 election and further loosen campaign finance limitations. Don’t forget Bush v. Gore, when the Supreme Court – on a party-line vote – delivered the presidency to George W. Bush.”
