nomination - and all three turned the offer down.

"Evangelicals are ecstatic because in less than two years President Trump has filled a second Supreme Court vacancy with a second conservative - just as he promised". A global team of about 30 correspondents in New York, London, Hong Kong and other major cities provides expert analysis in real time.

"I have often heard that other than matters of war and peace, this is often the most important decision a president will make", Mr. Trump said. "An exceptional person will be chosen".

According to the DC Circuit Court website, Kavanaugh volunteers, attends church, and coaches sports in the Washington, DC area, where he was born and raised. A report earlier Monday said Trump was focused on Circuit Court Judges Brett Kavanaugh and Thomas Hardiman.

Capito said on "Talkline" she should have said presidential election.

Leonard Leo, who took leave from the Federalist Society to advise Trump on the nomination process, told ABC's "This Week" that Trump could line up conservative support for any of the four picks.

And Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had pushed Trump to pick Sixth Circuit's Raymond Kethledge, being perhaps least controversial and most likely to win approved by enough Dems to augment GOP's thumbs up, which matters because of Republicans' slim edge in the Senate and Sen.


Kavanaugh also worked with special counsel Ken Starr during the Whitewater investigation of President Bill Clinton.

As soon as Trump announces his Supreme Court pick, Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political advocacy organization, says it will start airing ads in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia promoting the nomination.

Hardiman, who turned 53 on Sunday, lost out to Gorsuch in 2017.

"Bob Casey was for Judge Hardiman before he was against him, showing yet again that Casey will oppose anything President Trump does, even if it means contradicting himself", Barletta said in a statement. Given Trump's known habit of leaning on family ties and valuing loyalty above all, that could be decisive. Still, Republicans can only lose one vote.

Republicans occupy 51 Senate seats. "I don't think my role is to rubber-stamp for the president, but it's also not an automatic knee-jerk no, either". "This probably is the most extremist slate of judges we've ever seen". The framers established that the Constitution is created to secure the blessings of liberty. The court's senior liberal justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is 85.

President Donald Trump points before boarding Air Force One at Morristown Municipal Airport, in Morristown, N.J., Sunday, July 8, 2018, en route to Washington from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) questions Barrett on her Catholic faith and whether it would influence her decisions on the federal appeals court in her Senate confirmation hearing, September 6, 2017.


"Beyond the procedure, beyond the gamesmanship, it is a life-and-death important decision to be made by this court on so many issues", Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the body's No. 2 Democrat, said Sunday on NBC.

The White House and Republican party want the nomination in the bag before November's mid-term elections.

"It is my honour and privilege to announce that I will nominate Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court", Trump said late on Monday from the White House.

"Trump will never be elected president of the United States", said former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Conservative Heritage Action's Executive Director Tim Chapman said Mr. Trump had fulfilled "yet another campaign promise to nominate a Supreme Court Justice in the mold of Justices Scalia and Gorsuch who will impartially uphold the law and the Constitution as written".

Jennings said, "It became clear to him that one of the things he could do is set up the next president to remake the judiciary".
