Thune says Trump doesn't pick judges based on ideology

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an appellate judge from Maryland who has ruled against Obamacare and abortion rights in the past.

"A judge must be independent", he said. Kavanaugh said Monday that he remained "grateful" to his prospective new colleague.

But other Democrats - those with greater latitude to speak their minds - were more outspoken.

"I'm getting very close to making a final decision", Trump said.

"This incredibly qualified nominee deserves a swift confirmation and robust, bipartisan support", Trump said.

Last week I was told Trump had essentially narrowed the list down to two: Kavanaugh and 6th Circuit Judge Raymond Kethledge.

To that end, Kansas Democratic Party executive director Ethan Corson was quick to blast the choice.

"This list is the bidding of corporate special interests hell-bent on handing health care over to insurance companies, crushing unions that represent working men and women, and promoting policies that will leave the middle-class further behind", said Casey.

"Bob Casey is so blinded by partisanship that he is opposing a nominee for the Supreme Court before the pick is announced".

On Monday, President Trump announced his nominee for Supreme Court Justice - Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Momentum appeared to be with Kavanaugh and Hardiman, though the process remained fluid.

Judiciary members should seek "all of his writings and memos from his time at the White House".

With the Senate's Republican leadership saying it aims to complete the confirmation process before November's midterm elections, Democrats were nearing panic mode. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

What McConnell reportedly said about Trump's...

Those Democrats targeted in the ads include Sens. Chuck Schumer and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Another conservative justice on the U.S. Supreme Court who honors the original intent of the Constitution will have a positive impact on our country for decades".

If as expected Trump nominates someone firmly to the right, conservatives could dominate the court for years. At the top of that list is abortion. She once called a 1992 Supreme Court decision that upheld Roe v. Wade "erroneous".

The report also noted that the Supreme Court - which recently affirmed freedom of speech in saying pro-life crisis pregnancy centers can not be forced to promote abortion and freedom of religion in a decision on behalf of Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips in the same-sex marriage fight - now is earning its highest approval ratings in several years. Kennedy provided a decisive vote in 2015 on an important fair housing case. He is being accompanied by Vice President Mike Pence and former Sen. He now works for the Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling.

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Roy Blunt of Missouri said Sunday that they believe any of the top four contenders could get confirmed by the GOP-majority Senate. He is hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch past year. The president's attention in the coming days will be on meetings in Europe.

Relishing the drama like the ex-game show host he is, Trump plans to reveal the pick in prime time from the White House's East Room. The Judicial Crisis Network said Monday night it is launching "Confirm Kavanaugh" - a $1.4 million ad buy on national cable and digital platforms in Alabama as well as Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia. The others are Republican targets for the confirmation vote who come from Trump-won states where they face re-election this fall.

The leading Republican to replace Sen.

The nominee's fate may rest with two Republican senators who back abortion rights, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

The letter addresses the controversy surrounding the nomination after McConnell's Senate refused to vote on outgoing President Barack Obama nominee Merrick Garland in 2016 which allowed Trump to instill right-leaning Neil Gorsuch to the high court when he took office.

But his supporters note his experience and a wide range of legal opinions.
