TVC E. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., February 1, 2017. Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester said on Sunday that he would vote against Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

The Montana lawmaker said in a statement that Gorsuch was “a smart man,” but added: “That doesn’t make him right for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
