Schumer’s effort to adjourn the Senate comes as Republicans turn to a confirmation vote to fill a Supreme Court vacancy early next week.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on his nomination on Thursday afternoon, where he will require all 12 GOP senators on the panel to have the necessary quorum to send the nomination to the full Senate.
