Who is Supreme Court contender Amy Coney Barrett?

President Donald Trump speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington to announce Judge Neil Gorsuch standing with his wife Louise as his nominee for the Supreme Court. A family separation crisis of

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday".

"If you're a conservative Republican, the four people named-particularly Thomas Hardiman, I'm glad he's on the list-are all winners, and every Republican should embrace these picks". Meanwhile, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona is battling brain cancer and has not been back to the Capitol since December. They see Trump and McConnell's revamping of the courts — in the face of Democratic filibusters that stall even popular nominees — as more important than even legislative victories.

"I am concerned that he's making it like a game show", Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy told NPR radio. That means President Trump should select anyone but Kethledge or Hardiman.

"I'm not sure I'm leaning anywhere on those four nominees". "I don't think ease of confirmability is something that people should care much about".

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 New York Times is also reporting that Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell is pushing for either Hardiman or Raymond Kethledge, another option.

MCCAMMON: Well, near the top of the potentially-tough-to-confirm list would be Brett Kavanaugh.

The senators have stayed mum on whether they're planning to support Trump's nominee, saying they'll wait until after he announces to weigh in.

With Democrats determined to vigorously oppose Trump's choice, the Senate confirmation battle is expected to dominate the months leading up to November's midterm elections.

Leo said that rallying Democrats on the issue of Roe v. Wade is a "scare tactic".

Whoever is announced Monday night is likely to be more conservative than Justice Kennedy on a range of social issues.

"Well, they're going to be completely in concert with President Trump's promise to only appoint biased judges who will overturn Roe". Previously, Collins voted for Gorsuch because of his belief in the significance of precedent.

Former Sen. Jon Kyl will guide President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process. Many, including Leo, believe that it was a major contributing factor to his victory in 2016. "Tonight, it is my honor and privilege to announce that I will nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court".

Kethledge, 51, sits on the Sixth Circuit appeals court.

Hardiman, originally recommended to Trump by his sister, Third Circuit Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, was again a finalist, having a backstory that appeals to POTUS: first member of his family to graduate college.

But she is also seen as potentially hard to confirm, given the narrowness of the Senate GOP majority, the previous controversy in her confirmation process when she was nominated for the federal bench a year ago, her lack of a deep judicial record of opinions and her openness to overturning Roe v. Wade.
