Watch Video Of Trump's Supreme Court Nomination

I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court.

Hardiman has a personal connection to the president, having served with Trump's sister on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.

Those who discussed the president's decision, and spoke on the condition of anonymity, did not disclose the name of the president's selection. Relishing the guessing game beyond the White House gates, Trump had little to say about his choice before the announcement.

Kavanaugh, 53, is expected to push the Court to the right on issues including business regulation and national security.

Kavanaugh, a former clerk for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, is the leading contender for the SCOTUS position.

The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN), whose leaders pushed Justice Neil Gorsuch over the finish line a year ago, are getting their war chests ready. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and Joe Donnelly of IN, all of whom face tough re-election bids. Doug Jones, a Democrat, or inflicting political damage on him in his reelection campaign in 2020. For lawmakers who are not on the Judiciary Committee, it may be their only chance to talk with the nominee personally before a final vote. If the decision is made permanent, it would lead to higher premiums.

The president and White House officials involved in the process have fielded calls and messages and have been on the receiving end of public pleas and op-eds for or against specific candidates since Kennedy announced on June 27 that he would retire this summer.

Heitkamp also said she wouldn't attend. Most - though not all - Democrats appear dead set against confirming anyone Mr. Trump nominates, and Republicans only have 51 votes there to begin with.

It will be one of the most consequential decisions President Trump makes during his time in the White House, and he will announce it tonight. A more conservative majority could be more willing to uphold state restrictions on abortion, if not overturn the 45-year-old landmark Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman's constitutional right.

The Judicial Crisis Network, the main conservative television and advertising effort, announced plans Monday to spend an additional $1.4 million, on top of the $1 million already committed to support the nominee.

"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", Casey said in a statement. He's an appeals court judge - federal appeals court judge in D.C. And heading into the weekend, he was seen as a favorite.

But that element of his record is among the reasons that some Republicans in Congress are concerned about a confirmation hearing in the Senate.

Elected officials in NY, including Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, Sen. When the announcement is made, the campaign will kick off. But it was the former Republican leader, Mississippi Sen.

Senator Dianne Feinstein said Trump's choice "could have a bigger effect on Americans' daily lives than any justice in our lifetime".

McConnell reportedly told Trump that Kavanaugh, a former assistant and staff secretary to former President George W. Bush, has an extensive paper trail that could help Democrats prolong the nomination process. It's not an arm of the White House.

Democrats in the past also have pointed to Kavanaugh's work for Bush during the 2000 recount fight, a controversy that was resolved only after the conservative-majority Supreme Court sided with Bush over Democratic candidate Al Gore, settling the election outcome.

"As my friend Lindsey Graham said yesterday, he said it's as if we have four winning lottery tickets, each could be a great Supreme Court justice in their own right. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history, and tradition and precedent", Kavanaugh said during the ceremony in which he emphasized his family and his Roman Catholic faith.
