Democratic Senator Joe Manchin said on Thursday he would support the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, giving Republicans the first of eight Democratic votes they would need to avoid a filibuster.

"I will vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the ninth justice on the Supreme Court," Manchin said on Twitter.

But another Democrat seen as on the fence, Senator Maria Cantwell, said she would back a filibuster and vote against Gorsuch's confirmation.
