The president has been lobbied in the final hours of his selection process by both supporters and opponents of the four candidates, all of whom are federal appeals court judges with conservative records. Dianne Feinstein a year ago during her confirmation hearing to the federal bench.

Trump called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time", saying he is "considered a judge's judge and a true thought leader among his peers".

A former lawyer and top aide to President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh has served on the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for the past 12 years. The White House prepared briefing materials on all four.

Sherpas - a reference to the guides who lead climbers up Mount Everest - are responsible for accompanying nominees as they visit with senators and face confirmation hearings.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said opponents were using "40-year-old scare tactics" over abortion and other issues but they "will not stop us from doing the right thing".

"Kansans have known for a long time that they can't count on the Trump administration or congressional Republicans to protect civil rights, voting rights, women's access to health care, or longstanding environmental and labor standards", Corson said.

In a primetime announcement at the White House, Mr Trump praised his pick as a "brilliant jurist".

Democrats who plan to oppose Trump's nominee are focusing on two Republican moderates, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, hoping to turn them against Trump's selection. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. The nomination is poised to cement the Supreme Court's conservative majority, vastly reshaping the court for decades to come.

Throughout the search for Trump's second Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh was a favorite of the conservative legal cognoscenti.

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. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told NPR's Morning Edition. Barrett has said she believes life begins at conception. I am thinking of that person, but I will announce it on prime-time TV at the White House.

On Monday, Trump phoned Justice Kennedy to inform him that his former law clerk would be nominated to fill his seat. He is 51, and among all the reported shortlisters, he is the only non-Catholic.
