WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 09: U.S. PresidentDonald Trump introduces U.S. Circuit Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as his nominee to the United States Supreme Court during an event in the East Room of the White HouseJuly 9, 2018 in Washington, DC. Barrett is a former University of Notre Dame law professor, (and a graduate of the school; Kavanaugh meanwhile received his undergrad and law degrees from Yale). A former White House aide under Bush who previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, he faced a long confirmation battle when Bush nominated him to his current post.
"What matters is not a judge's political views, but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the Constitution require. During his more than 12 years on the bench, Judge Kavanaugh has authored hundreds of opinions on issues ranging from national security to agency rule-making to constitutional rights", Hatch said in a prepared statement.
The president has already begun using the high court vacancy as a rallying cry as he campaigns for Republicans across the country. Bob Casey (D-Pa.), who opposes abortion, announced on Monday he can not support a process that involved Trump's picking from a list of 25 candidates selected by conservatives and big business. SCOTUSblog, which covers actions of the Supreme Court, said his opinions have shown an "originalist approach to the Second Amendment right to bear arms", and that he "has not weighed in directly on issues relating to abortion" - two hot-button issues.
Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said he was bracing for a tough confirmation battle as Democrats focus on abortion.
While activists and progressive groups are targeting moderate Republican senators who support abortion rights like Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, urging them to reject any Trump nominee who is hostile to Roe v. Wade, a handful of Democrats will be key in deciding whether the president gets his pick confirmed to the high court, because of the razor-thin partisan divide in the Senate.
A nominee needs a simple majority of 51 votes to be confirmed.
One Democrat up for re-election, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, announced Monday he would oppose any nominee from Trump's list of 25 possible candidates, drafted by conservative groups. Joe Manchin and North Dakota Sen.
Trump is hoping to replicate his successful nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year. Chuck Schumer (D- NY) says by picking Kavanaugh, Trump is delivering on his pledge to "punish" women for their choices, putting abortion rights and health care protections for women "on the judicial chopping block".

This is Trump's second nominee to the court and gives him a chance to shape the court's direction for decades to come. "There is no question in my mind regarding Brett for the Supreme Court". Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has tried to warn the president through gentle nudging that Hardiman and Kethledge would be the safest choices for confirmation.
He says he will fight the nomination "with everything I have".
Trump is scheduled to make his much-awaited announcement during his prime time address to the nation tomorrow at 9 pm (1 am GMT).
Hatch said he expects a fight with the Democrats over the nomination will be "vicious". Barletta was elected to the U.S. House in 2010-a Republican "wave" year-and was also rumored to be on Trump's short list for labor secretary during the transition.
Recent developments underline the shrewdness of Trump's campaign team, which published a list of potential court nominees with stellar conservative credentials before he faced off against Hillary Clinton.
