Trump tweeted on Sunday.

He served with Judge Maryanne Barry, President Trump's sister.

The stakes are sky high for filling the opening created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's imminent retirement.

Trump planned to announce his pick tonight. I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court.

"It's an historic decision".

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.

Rounding out the top four: Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.

It also plans to run ads next week in Manchin's, Donnelly's and Heitkamp's home states with a softer tone, asking them to continue protecting people with pre-existing health conditions by opposing a nominee who'd threaten that. Hardiman, who drove a cab as he worked his way through college, was in the running for the seat that eventually went to Gorsuch. Republicans will be looking to win their votes once more after a confirmation hearing that is expected to take place before the midterm elections.

Kavanaugh, 53, was first nominated to the appeals court by President George W. Bush in 2003. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) made Barrett a religious-rights cult hero.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "Whoever is nominated, whoever he or she is, they're going to be there for a long time".

All have a solidly conservative voting record and Judge Barrett, a member of a Catholic revivalist group named People of Praise, is said to be most open to overturning Roe v Wade, the... I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.

While Democrats are flailing, Trump can hardly lose.

Leo said that rallying Democrats on the issue of Roe v. Wade is a "scare tactic".

Recent developments underline the shrewdness of Trump's campaign team, which published a list of potential court nominees with stellar conservative credentials before he faced off against Hillary Clinton.

The last-minute jockeying by lawmakers and other political stakeholders played right into the reality show-like gamesmanship surrounding President Trump's choice for Supreme Court nominee - right down to a blast from the past re-emerging on Trump's list of finalists.

In a wider sense, his nominee will also represent a triumph for conservatism and the organized effort to promote vetted conservative judges that offered McConnell a pipeline of candidates for lower courts and now is reaching the ultimate prize - a solid Supreme Court majority.
