Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., said he is against confirming Neil Gorsuch for a seat on the Supreme Court, The Hill reported.

"I don't believe that Judge Gorsuch, his judicial approach, would ensure fairness for workers and families in Pennsylvania ... and I will not support his nomination," Casey said.

Casey, who is not a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that conducted this week's nomination hearing, voiced concerns about Gorsuch's judicial philosophy and some of his past opinions on the health and safety of workers, The Morning Call newspaper in Allentown, Pa., reported.

"Judge Gorsuch's opinions often reflect a commitment to satisfy his judicial philosophy more than to grapple with the complex circumstances faced by ordinary Americans," Casey said.

And the Hill noted Casey is up for re-election in 2018 in a state won by President Donald Trump.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee sharply criticized Casey's opposition to Gorsuch, according to the Hill.

"By opposing Judge Neil Gorsuch, Bob Casey is aligning himself with the far left instead of honoring the will of Pennsylvania voters, said NRSC spokesman Bob Salera.

"Pennsylvanians will remember Casey's betrayal when they head to the polls in 2018."
