President Trump Narrows It Down To Two Judges

Thai cave rescue

But there is still no indication which of the four finalists it will be.

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

Departing his New Jersey golf club on Sunday afternoon, Trump told reporters he was still making up his mind.

"Well, it's still - let's say it's the four people". Every one you can't go wrong. Kelly Ayotte served as the "sherpa" for Justice Neil Gorsuch in 2017. His "blue-collar" personal story appeals to Trump: Hardiman was the first member of his family to attend college, the University of Notre Dame, and then worked his way through law school as a taxi driver.

This will be the second time he has been able to choose a justice in the past 18 months. She is conservative and she is Catholic, and her religion became an issue during her 7th Circuit confirmation hearings when Sen.

Kavanaugh, 53, is said to be supported by White House Counsel Don McGahn, who's supervising the search. The White House said today that former Sen.

The conservative Judicial Crisis Network is set to launch a $1.4 million ad buy on behalf of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. "And I believe this person will do a great job".

Two other candidates for the seat of the retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy - Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Raymond Kethledge - were not the focus of Mr. Trump's morning discussions.... He's written a book on leadership called Lead Yourself First. The new justice has the potential to entrench conservative control of the Supreme Court for years to come. Kavanaugh had been a law clerk for Kennedy.




By Monday Barrett, at 46 the youngest and the only woman of the four, was being widely discounted due to her relative inexperience and her strong views as a social and religious conservative. The Supreme Court has the privilege of essentially revisiting or even overturning its own precedents. "She wrote that "there is little reason to think that reversals [of past decisions] would do much damage" to the court's reputation". "It's important to have people who are extremely well known and have distinguished records".

"I think Kavanaugh now raises too many questions", the source close to the White House said.

Hardiman, 53, was nominated to the federal trial court by George W. Bush in 2003 and to the 3rd Circuit in 2007, when he was confirmed by the Senate in a 95-0 vote.

Interested in Donald Trump? Kennedy sometimes joined the liberal justices on key rulings on divisive social issues like abortion and gay rights, a practice his replacement may not duplicate.

FILE PHOTO: The U.S. Supreme Court is seen as the court nears the end of its term in Washington, U.S., June 11, 2018. He recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing an undocumented teenage immigrant to get an abortion. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line. And that is a big if. Perhaps it will fire up Democrats to embark on the decades-long quest to remake the ideological balance of the court that the GOP has used to enthuse its grassroots voters and that Trump harnessed in 2016.

Raymond Kethledge of MI, who also has many high-profile supporters who see him as a positive alternative to the other three. I'm open to voting no.

"This is a nightmare for red state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee - and all these candidates are highly qualified", Lindsey Graham, the senator from SC, told Fox News Sunday.
