Americans want Senate to move quickly on Supreme pick

Judge Thomas Hardiman smiles during a meeting with The Associated Press in Philadelphia

His mother, Martha, became a Maryland state judge a quarter-century ago.

"No president has ever consulted more widely, or talked with more people from more backgrounds to seek input abut a Supreme Court nomination".

"I am grateful to you and I am humbled by your confidence in me". Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down past year.

Kethledge, a former Kennedy law clerk, has sat on the 6th Circuit since 2008 after being nominated by George W. Bush. Last fall, he joined a panel of judges in issuing an order to prevent an undocumented immigrant teenager in US detention from obtaining an abortion.

MCCAMMON: Yeah, 9 Eastern time tonight is when the White House says the news will be coming out. While waiting, he's penned he has written almost 300 opinions and sent 41 of his law clerks to similar posts at the high court - far more than any of the other leading candidates for the nomination.

Meanwhile, liberal groups like NARAL Pro-Choice, Protect our Care and Demand Justice are pouring millions into ad campaigns of their own, drawing attention to what a conservative-leaning justice might mean for abortion rights, in particular.

Each of the nine justices serves a lifetime appointment.

His appointment will not change the ideological tilt of a court that already has a 5-4 conservative majority, but he could nevertheless shift the bench further right.

After days of frenzied lobbying and speculation, Trump selected the 53-year-old federal appellate judge for the seat opened up by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. But Judge Kavanaugh may not be so accommodating.

This morning, Casey's office released a statement followed by a series of tweets stating his opposition to President Donald Trump's selection for the United States Supreme Court.

The front-runner was a front-runner for a reason. Trump has been struggling with Kavanaugh's association with the Bush family, however, an issue the Post calls the "Bush factor". In the end, however, the safe pick won out.

Kavanaugh is likely to be more conservative than Justice Kennedy on a range of social issues. Republican Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri told NBC's "Meet The Press" the president should take note of that political reality in his choice.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, who once held a court seat open for almost a year before the 2016 election to keep former President Barack Obama from filling it, lambasted Democrats for announcing their opposition before Trump had decided on a nominee.

Senate Republicans are pleased that Kyl will be the one to help the nominee navigate the arduous confirmation process.

A nominee needs a simple majority of 51 votes to be confirmed. With the expected absence of Republican senator John McCain due to brain cancer, Republicans only have 50 votes. Kyl also was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold a hearing on Trump's choice for the court. Democratic senators running for re-election in states Trump carried in 2016 will face pressure to back his nominee. That decision was later overturned.

The White House and Republican party want the nomination in the bag before November's mid-term elections. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) are waiting until after Trump announces his nominee before revealing how they will vote. It's the same court that produced three current high court justices.

Meanwhile, liberal groups are already calling on two moderate Republican senators - Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - to reject the nominee.

Barrett, confirmed to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on October 31, has faced opposition by abortion rights groups because she has called Roe v. Wade an erroneous decision.
