Pence has met with Supreme Court contenders

Blessedly, the Democrat noted, this one was air-conditioned. Senate Republicans, however, would not consider the nomination in March, saying it had to wait until after the presidential election in November. She was confirmed with 55 bi-partisan votes, one more vote than Justice Gorsuch received.

Raymond Kethledge, 51, also formerly worked as a law clerk to Justice Kennedy and has served on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals since 2008, after being nominated by President George W. Bush.

However, more recent reports suggest Hardiman is still under consideration. "Of course, that doesn't fit with the Democratic talking points that the right to have an abortion is now in peril by this next pick", Malcolm said.

Paul says choosing a woman could be a good political move for Trump.

It's not surprising then - and indeed a "smart" strategy, according to Professor Lawless and others - that Democratic Senate minority leader Charles Schumer of NY is highlighting and pairing abortion rights and health care as issues that hang in the balance with Justice Kennedy's replacement. That's when justices relied on strict interpretations of property and contract rights - and a narrow view of federal authority - to strike down laws on wages, hours and other forms of business regulation.

That list, he pointed out, was vetted by organizations committed to overturning Roe and shrinking government's role in health care. In addition, Kavanaugh has written opinions on abortion and health care that some conservatives view as too compromising. He's expected to announce his nomination Monday.

On Wednesday, Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, reiterated that she could not vote for a nominee with a "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a woman's right to an abortion.

"If Trump wants to pay back the people who elected him in 2016, putting a midwesterner on the highest bench is one way to do it", HotAir.com says.

Assured he is a candidate of character, talent and originalist disposition, how about longevity?

The advocacy group plans to protest outside of senators' offices. Joe Donnelly, the Indiana Democrat, enters the picture.




That's why Americans must demand that their senators use every tool to stop Trump's takeover of the Supreme Court.

Kennedy was on the Supreme Court when it heard its first right-to-die case in 1990. "The future of our country is on the line in the Supreme Court", he said last week.

"If Democrats tried to go anti-Catholic with her, that'd backfire and we know it", said Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.).

In April, the state House passed a "fetal pain" law banning abortions after 20 weeks.

McCaskill told reporters she is happy to debate Hawley on a variety of issues and in a town hall setting. Indeed, her Monday afternoon campaign event was focused on that very issue. "The existing court's assault on voting rights, collective bargaining and religious liberty is terrible enough - just imagine how bad working people will have it if another right-wing justice joins the court".

"I think I have it down to four people, and I think of the four people, I have it down to three or two".

Arguing that "the faithful application of the Constitution is the bedrock of our freedom", the president said his pick will also have "impeccable credentials, great intellect, unbiased judgement and deep reverence for the laws and Constitution of the United States". "He then adds that to how he feels and comes to a conclusion".

Asked to name the four candidates on his shortlist, Trump refused but reaffirmed that "I have it down to four".

During his 2003 confirmation hearings, he described volunteering at an immigration legal aid clinic in Washington, D.C., as "some of the most valuable time that I spent as a law student and as a lawyer" and said he "represented several immigrants who had entered without inspection".
