Red State Democrats In Hot Seat Over Trump's Supreme Court Pick

Trump teases big reveal of Supreme Court nominee tonight

Trump Expected to Unveil Supreme Court Nominee Monday Night

Trump previous year appointed Neil Gorsuch, who has already become one of the most conservative justices, after Senate Republicans in 2016 refused to consider Democratic former President Barack Obama's nominee Merrick Garland to fill a vacancy left by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. Similarly, although he dissented in a ruling that permitted a detained immigrant from obtaining an abortion, he didn't join another judge's dissent that said the immigrant had no legal rights whatsoever.

"Like President Trump's first appointment to the Supreme Court, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a commitment to interpreting the Constitution as it is written, rather than as he would personally like to have seen it written". But a woman's right to choose may be at the center of the Senate's confirmation hearings. He said, even during his campaign, and then he did it to a great success with his base - I will take the names from this list that's given to me by a conservative Republican group, even if it might exclude a great part of the American population, even though the Supreme Court is there for everybody, I will pick based on a small political group.

Outside adviser Leonard Leo, now on leave from the Federalist Society, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that this kind of jockeying is standard, noting that "every potential nominee before announcement gets concerns expressed about them by people who might ultimately support them".

Trump's success in confirming conservative judges, as well as a Supreme Court justice, has cheered Republicans amid concerns about his limited policy achievements and chaotic management style.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall - excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience. She would not comment on any of the finalists to reporters. Barrett has said she believes life begins at conception. It's about what [direction] the United States of America is going to chart as its course in the future on this Supreme Court. I want to play a little clip of Senator Lindsey Graham here.

Hardiman, 52, attended Georgetown Law. He was in the running previous year for the Supreme Court seat left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

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.

"Throughout legal circles, he is considered a judge's judge, a true thought leader among his peers", Trump said of Kavanaugh. Former President George W. Bush nominated him to the appeals court in 2003.

Conservative judicial activists will immediately begin running ads pressuring politically vulnerable Democratic senators to vote for confirmation.

Kavanaugh, 53, began his career as a clerk to Kennedy.

He is the kind of judge a President Jeb Bush or Mitt Romney would have picked - a man with an established legal pedigree and a reputation as a reliably conservative jurist.

A Maryland native whose mother was a public school teacher who went on to serve as a state judge in Maryland, Kavanaugh got his undergraduate and law degrees from Yale University. The barn office has no internet connection and uses a wood stove for heat.

Thus it was that the 81-year-old Californian - until recently the only Westerner on the nine-member court - cast the deciding votes in recent years on gay marriage and gun ownership, prayer and privacy, campaign finance and capital punishment. That ruling was overturned by a sitting of all the judges on his court. Previous lobbying efforts by McConnell - including a push for fellow Kentuckian 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amul Thapar, who would have been the court's first Asian-American nominee - have failed.
