Friday’s victory for Gorsuch gives a win to President Trump and the outside conservative groups who have worked for months to ensure Gorsuch’s confirmation. The judge’s confirmation team included the White House counsel’s office, McConnell’s office, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the Republican National Committee and outside conservative groups such as the Judicial Crisis Network and America Rising. Former New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Gorsuch’s former law clerks also assisted.
The Judicial Crisis Network launched a $10 million campaign for Gorsuch with partners such as America Rising and Tea Party Patriots to mobilize conservative grass-roots supporters and pressure Senate Democrats to confirm Gorsuch.
