The new justice can be expected to cast crucial votes on other matters of national importance including gay rights, gun control, the death penalty and voting rights.
Besides Kavanaugh, top contenders for the role included federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.
President Donald Trump has decided on his Supreme Court nominee, a person with knowledge of the situation revealed today, hours before a prime-time TV announcement that will ignite a fierce confirmation battle. McConnell said he will push for a vote on the nomination before the November midterms. Given the Republican's slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, the conservative seemingly already has the numbers to take Kennedy's seat.
While conservatives have so far chose to focus on Democratic senators, liberals have crafted a divided strategy for pressuring both Democrats and Republicans. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Sen. Both support a woman's right to have an abortion and will be looking for assurances that the nominee would not overturn the Roe v Wade decision establishing abortion rights. And while the Constitution supports a woman's right to choose, Trump made clear before he nominated Gorsuch that he would only appoint justices who were willing to overrule Roe. The fight over his confirmation was contentious, with Illinois Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
The Judicial Crisis Network is planning a $1.4 million ad buy in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia - states with moderate Democratic senators who could be pressured to vote for Trump's nominee. He has a solidly conservative record as a judge in cases involving government regulation and the separation of powers, issues that are important to the groups supporting his candidacy. In addition to protesting Trump's nomination, they argued that Democrats have not done enough to protect the liberal progress.
Senator John McCain tweeted praise for Kavanaugh's nomination.
Democrats in the past also have pointed to Kavanaugh's work for Bush during the 2000 recount fight, a controversy that was resolved only after the conservative-majority Supreme Court sided with Bush over Democratic candidate Al Gore, settling the election outcome. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) told the president over the weekend that Hardiman and Kethledge would face the fewest obstacles to confirmation.
Relishing the guessing game beyond the White House gates, Trump had little to say about his choice.
"I'm not sure I'm leaning anywhere on those four nominees".
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer promised to opposed Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything he has.
Much of the groundwork for a successful confirmation comes in private meetings that the nominee will have with individual senators in the coming weeks.
What such a move also is sure to do is galvanize many who did vote for Trump - people who knew of the candidate's list and obviously approved of it and of him. Gorsuch met with almost three-quarters of the Senate in advance of his hearings. I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court. Susan Collins, of ME, to speak out, told Stephanopoulos last week that a candidate who would overturn Roe v. Wade "would not be acceptable", because it indicates an "activist agenda" she didn't want to see in a judge.
But Democrats in the Senate and liberals in the outside groups have called for a higher standard, saying such commitments can no longer be trusted given Trump's judicial selection process. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told NPR's Morning Edition.
The Senate must confirm Trump's nominee, who will be backed campaign-style by the White House and conservative legal organizations.
In Janus v. AFSCME, Gorsuch voted to overrule a 41-year-old precedent upholding the constitutionality of state laws that allow public sector unions to require nonmembers to pay their fair share of the costs of collective bargaining.
