Trump to name his Supreme Court nominee

Hardiman, who lives in Pennsylvania, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, where he served at one time with Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.

"Justice Kennedy's resignation letter barely arrived in the President's hands before several Democratic colleagues began declaring their blanket opposition to anyone at all - anyone - that the President might name", McConnell said Monday.

The White House has assembled a team to handle communications, strategy and messaging coordination to defend and push the nomination through on Capitol Hill.

Kyl served for 18 years in the Senate before retiring in 2013.

Besides Kavanaugh, other top contenders were federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.

Republicans ignored Obama's nominee and delayed the vote until the 2017 Senate session when it approved Trump's nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, for the Scalia seat.

Gelernt said that process was created to vet relatives other than parents who might care for children who crossed the border without a parent.

"Democratic senators running for re-election in Trump Country face an agonizing choice over President Trump's coming Supreme Court nominee: Vote to confirm the pick and risk demoralizing Democratic voters ahead of the midterm elections, or stick with the party and possibly sacrifice their own seats - and any chance at a Democratic majority in 2019", the Times reported.

"We have to pick a great one", he said.

Kethledge, 51, is a University of Michigan Law School graduate and former Kennedy law clerk who works out of an office he set up in an old barn overlooking Lake Huron in northern Michigan. All are conservative jurists in the mold of Trump's previous Supreme Court pick, Gorsuch. "This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats, to oppose a highly qualified nominee and all four of these people are highly qualified", he added.

While the president has been pondering his choice, his aides have been preparing for what is expected to be a tough confirmation fight. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

On average, for Supreme Court nominees who have received hearings, the hearing occurred 39 days after the nomination was formally submitted, according to the Congressional Research Service. Susan Collins said she wouldn't support a nominee hostile to the court's precedent in Roe v. Wade - and the conservative Barrett has expressed a willingness to reverse precedent she sees as wrongly decided.

Trump is said to have apparently lost interest in Kethledge. He is also a George W. Bush appointment to the federal bench. He's written 286 opinions, which is the most of any current judge under consideration.

In recent years the Supreme Court has made landmark decisions on fundamental and often politically charged issues ranging from same-sex marriage, abortion, gun rights, corporate money in elections, and free speech.

Those views could have implications for independent counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump. "Casey is refusing to even consider the President's #SCOTUS nominee". The issue was her involvement with a mostly Catholic, conservative religious group called People of Praise. And, you know, the concern would be that something could pop up going through all those papers that could make him a tougher pick.
