This week, over on the Election Central Web site we examine the beginning of the confirmation hearing process for Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.

For three days, Gorsuch answered senators’ difficult questions on issues such as abortion, gun control, campaign spending, and whether or not he would allow cameras in the Supreme Court. Many Senate Democrats were unsatisfied with Gorsuch’s answers, which were often not very specific. Gorsuch said he rules fairly according to the law, but would not commit to a direct point of view on many of the important issues the senators brought up.
