Neither side is blinking in a stare down over the Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

Senate Democrats have the votes to block Neil Gorsuch, denying the appeals court judge the 60 votes needed to clear a procedural hurdle:

(McConnell) "They seem to hurdling toward the abyss this time, and trying to take the Senate with them."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning Democrats to think through what he calls the first partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee.

Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer argues there was worse treatment for President Obama's nominee Merrick Garland:

(Schumer) "By denying him even a hearing and a vote is worse than a filibuster."

McConnell is likely to move for a change to longstanding Senate rules to get around the filibuster.
