Had Democrats not tried to block Gorsuch, they would still have the filibuster.

The GOP's focus on the judiciary has been sharpened by their narrow 51-49 Senate majority, which has made passing legislation hard. But they're determined to make it agonizing for a pair of pivotal GOP senators to back the nominee. The interviews comprised seven conversations - Trump talked to one candidate twice. The six candidates are: Appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul Thapar, Joan Larsen and Thomas Hardiman.
