It’s official: President Trump has made his decision to nominate D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

And the Left is ready to go to war. In fact, the Left was ready to go to war before Trump made his pick.

Now that they have a name to protest, Democratic leaders and organizations have begun a social media campaign with #StopKavanaugh.

So Kavanaugh is making all of the right enemies, which was always going to happen for any individual Trump nominated to the Supreme Court. More interesting is the pushback against Kavanaugh from the social-conservative American Family Association.

Opposition from the Left will not be enough to unite conservatives in support of Trump’s SCOTUS nominee. The Senate confirmation hearings will need to demonstrate that Judge Kavanaugh has strong fidelity to the United State Constitution, including protecting religious liberty and the right to life for the unborn.
