We're told the four finalists are federal appeals court judges Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

Trump plans to announce his pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy during prime time Monday night.

Trump had said he hoped to make his decision by the time he returned Sunday from a weekend in New Jersey, but he told reporters en route to the White House that he needed more time.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Sunday President Trump is acting like a "puppet" for outside groups and claimed Trump is set to nominate a "fringe ideologue" to the Supreme Court.

"He could throw a dart on that list" and conservatives would be happy.

Kavanaugh, 53, is a former Kennedy law clerk who was appointed to the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals by former President George W. Bush after serving five years in the White House counsel's office during the Bush administration.

But both senators voted to confirm Gorsuch, who would be expected by conservative activists to vote to return decisions about abortions to the states. Hardiman, a one-time cab driver from Waltham, Massachusetts who was the first member of his family to attend college, served alongside Trump's older sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, on the 3rd Circuit. The White House said today that former Sen.

Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, says it's "extremely disappointing" that some Democrats have made clear they'll oppose the nominee even before the president announces his choice.


Issuing the invitations makes the lawmakers choose between humoring voters who think they should be bipartisan and others who feel they shouldn't condone Trump's pick. In a recent case involving abortion and immigration, he wrote a decision that temporarily barred a pregnant teenager in immigration custody from obtaining an abortion.

The president will unveil his choice from the White House at 9 p.m. EDT. Without Republican defections, however, Senate rules leave Democrats with scant options to block confirmation of Trump's nominee. He said all four judges on Mr. Trump's shortlist are highly qualified to fill the vacancy on the highest court.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year.

Democrats are certain to press Trump's latest nominee on views toward the most divisive of topics: the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide, a decision some conservatives - particularly conservative Christians - have long wanted to overturn. Susan Collins of ME, who has expressed disquiet about the nomination of a judge who might overturn Roe v. Wade. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge.

Conservatives will focus on moderate Democrats running for re-election in Trump country, such as Indiana's Joe Donnelly, North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp and West Virginia's Joe Manchin.

"I'm open to voting yes".

"Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!" he wrote.

"I'm very confident with this president's enthusiasm and with Leader McConnell's enthusiasm that they can get anybody confirmed", Mr. Leo said on ABC's "This Week".
