Abortion Not Focus of Trump's SCOTUS Search, Key Adviser Says

Why would someone call their Dodge Charger General Lee? Beats us but they're the Dukes of Hazzard that's what we know. This vehicle is so iconic in fighting cop cars a live version of the TV show was set up in Virginia last year. However iro

The judges on the list are reportedly Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge, report the Washington Post and the New York Times.

"Justice Kavanaugh has the most experience but Justice Hardiman is the one that will get through the Senate more easily and he would bring better legal mind to the United States or in court than all four", Valentino told News10NBC.

Since Kennedy declared his retirement almost two weeks ago, conservative groups have been gearing up for a battle of a lifetime as Democrats vow to do everything possible to block President Trump's choice.

President Donald Trump is going down to the wire as he makes his choice on a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, but he says with his final four options "you can't go wrong".

In many ways, Trump's pick will further empower the conservative backlash against progressive victories of the Obama era, on issues like gay rights, immigration and health care legislation that set a torch under his shock general election campaign.

Once Trump names his nominee, all eyes will shift to a handful of moderate Democratic and Republican senators.

Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said he was bracing for a tough confirmation battle as Democrats focus on abortion.

The officials underscored that McConnell did not push any choice on the president. A former White House aide under Bush who previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, he faced a long confirmation battle when Bush nominated him to his current post.

But that element of his record is among the reasons that some Republicans in Congress are concerned about a confirmation hearing in the Senate. The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen.

If Collins and Murkowski vote "no" and Democrats all vote "no", the nomination would be blocked.

And Democrats can not even be sure of holding their line against Trump's pick.

A person familiar with the selection process earlier indicated Trump was narrowing the field, with Barrett the least likely among the four to be chosen.

"I'm open to voting yes".

It is not exaggeration to say that the prospect of tipping the balance of the Supreme Court was the reason why evangelical conservative voters, who had plenty of reason to worry about Trump's character, chose to stick with him during the 2016 election campaign.

Any of the candidates on Trump's short list would probably move the court to the right.

President Donald Trump said Sunday afternoon he still had not made his final decision on a Supreme Court nominee, but anticipated finishing by Monday.

By installing Gorsuch and another, similar candidate on the court, Trump can tell conservative voters that he kept his promises and give them a reason to solidify his electoral coalition. The new justice has the potential to entrench conservative control of the Supreme Court for years to come. The ad is expected to feature an introductory bio on the president's yet-to-be-named Supreme Court nominee.
