White House Outlines President's Supreme Court Nomination Team

Van Tine Dennis  Sipa USA

Sunday morning on Meet the Press, Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) said this will be a key vote for everyone in the Senate.

Trump's initial short list of 25 names of potential nominees was largely handpicked by The Federalist Society, an influential group of conservative lawyers. So it was reassuring to many pro-choicers when Collins insisted, in an interview with CNN this weekend, that she "would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade." .

Immediately, the Judicial Crisis Network, which pushed heavily for Trump's first Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, released a 30-second video advertisement as part of a seven-figure campaign to confirm "another great justice", despite not even knowing who the next nominee would be.

"Again, as this is ongoing, I'm not going to weigh into anything specific at this point", Sanders said.

Among the precedents that some are anxious the court could possibly reverse: the same-sex marriage law and the abortion case, Roe v. Wade.

He has the backing of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican.

Four women have served on the Supreme Court, and all four have consistently ruled in favor of the abortion industry.

Trump's ability to replace Kennedy - known as a moderate voice on the Supreme Court - with a more conservative justice has led many to speculate that Roe v. Wade's days as settled law could be numbered.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said he had met with "four potential justices of our great Supreme Court".

Kennedy revealed last week that he's retiring from his post after 30 years in office, raising concerns that Trump' new pick could potentially reverse the Supreme Court decisions on Roe V. Wade, which legalized access to safe abortions, and Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized same-sex marriages.

"Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that's really what's going to be - that will happen", Trump said during the final debate of the 2016 presidential election. "If chosen as the nominee, she will be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to strike down preexisting conditions protections in the ACA".

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, an abortion rights supporter, is considered one of the key votes on a nominee.

"But", he told Maria Bartiromo, "I'm putting conservative people on". Yet as a judge in the military courts rather than civilian, Ryan has little track record of rulings on hot button issues that give Democrats the fodder to hold up or outright oppose her confirmation.

"What's important in addition to increasing diversity is how that person would actually interpret law", Chu said. "You're voting on whether that nominee is going to change precedent", said Cantwell.
