“Why Gorsuch could lead court in wrong direction”

Re-upping my CNN Opinion piece with the Gorsuch hearings beginning:

Unfortunately, this approach obscures the fact that keeping the steady course with a conservative replacement for Scalia will be bad enough across a range of topics important to many Americans, from environmental protection to immigration law to the ability of labor unions to collect dues from their members. Even though Gorsuch is not a Scalia clone, things are likely to be pretty bad on these key issues, because Gorsuch is likely to vote like Scalia, and the court with Scalia already was moving in a very bad direction.
Consider how things will likely get worse in two areas that are the focus of my work, campaign finance and voting rights.
