Donnelly becomes the third Democrat to publicly announce support of Gorsuch. Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota have also made public declarations of their intention to vote for Gorsuch. All three of these Democrats are in states that President Trump carried in November. The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on Gorsuch’s confirmation Monday, and the full Senate is expected to take up the nomination before the end of the week.
