Senate Democrats claim Scalia’s seat was stolen from Judge Merrick Garland, who then-President Barack Obama nominated. Republicans successfully stopped Garland’s nomination for 10 months until Obama was out of office.
Gorsuch sailed through his confirmation to the 10th Circuit with a Senate voice vote in 2006, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Kevin Daley.
