The United States Senate voted by a margin of 54 to 45 Friday to confirm Neil Gorsuch as the newest Supreme Court associate justice. 

Vice President Mike Pence presided over the Senate during the historic vote to fill the vacancy left last year by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. 

Heading into the vote, all Republicans were expected to vote for Gorsuch, joined by three Democrats from red states: Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell used the "nuclear option" to break the Democrats' filibuster with a simple majority vote. 

Fox News' Chad Pergram reports that Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) joined with Republicans in the effort Thursday, but voted against Gorsuch's confirmation Friday.

All other Democrats were expected to vote against Gorsuch.

Gorsuch will be sworn in Monday morning by Chief Justice John Roberts as the 101st Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court.

Later on Monday, Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will administer the Judicial Oath at a public ceremony at the White House.
