Gorsuch officially confirmed to SCOTUS

Tit for tat. Following a series of procedural votes yesterday to invoke the so-called 'nuclear option', the Senate has voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch as the 113th justice to serve on the Supreme Court.
ZeroHedge: After weeks of endless rhetoric and party bickering over the controversial usage of the 'nuclear option', Neil Gorsuch has officially been confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States with a largely partisan vote of 54-45.

Done! One promise kept.

ADDENDUM: Confirmed on Friday, sworn in on Monday...

TheBlaze: Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Monday, filling the vacancy left on the nation’s highest court by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last year.

Gorsuch took two oaths in order to serve on the court, the first constitutional oath in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court, the second judicial oath during a ceremony at the White House.
