“I think McCaskill is going to be a little bit concerned about base enthusiasm, it seems like there are some signs there as well, and I think Bill Nelson might have the same issue in Florida, so I would expect them to vote no," he said.

McCaskill has taken heat from her likely Republican opponent Josh Hawley for her vote on Gorsuch.

Hawley launched a campaign ad attacking McCaskill's decision to vote against Gorsuch last March, saying she put her party ahead of Missouri in the vote.
