An initial vote on Neil Gorsuch's bid for the U.S. Supreme Court is delayed.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

One week after the opening the confirmation hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch, the Senate Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote on sending that nomination to the full Senate, but as expected, Democrats asked for a delay:

(Feinstein) "The President nominated someone who was very qualified. And that individual couldn't get a hearing, a meeting or be considered."

Top committee Democrat Dianne Feinstein renewing her party's frustration over Judge Merrick Garland's thwarted nomination last year.

Committee rules allow for nominees to be held over for one week and Gorsuch is expected to win the panel's approval next Monday before facing a full Senate vote.
