Trump weighs top picks for Supreme Court amid last-minute maneuvering

"There is no one in America more qualified for this position and no one more deserving", said Trump in his prime-time televised address from the White House, calling Kavanaugh "one of the sharpest legal minds of our time". As a result, Democrats have accused Republicans of stealing a Supreme Court seat. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday".
Hardiman holds a consistently conservative voting record. It is unclear whether Senator John McCain, a Republican, will vote as he is undergoing brain cancer treatment.
Hardiman, a runner-up when Trump chose Neil Gorsuch as his high court nominee a year ago, received a wave of new attention in the weekend discussions, according to two people briefed on the matter but not authorized to speak publicly about it.
A handful of Senate Democrats running for re-election in states that Trump won handily in 2016 could face a hard vote on the court nominee, potentially providing Republicans with an additional buffer if they decide to support the president. "She has made clear - as she said to the President in person two weeks ago - that she considers fully vetting Supreme Court nominees one of the most important jobs of any US senator, and she plans to fulfill that critical duty".
Hearings for the most recent nominees to the Supreme Court have lasted four or five days, though there were 11 days of hearings for Robert Bork's nomination in 1987.
Kavanaugh now faces another confirmation battle in the Senate, where he will be guided by former Arizona Senator Jon Kyl, who served on the Senate Judiciary Committee for 4 of the last 5 Supreme Court confirmations.
"I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here", added Sen.

Barrett, who is 46, has less of a judicial record to review, having just been nominated to the appeals court by Trump a year ago. Kavanaugh has an extensive paper trail that could potentially enable Democrats to stretch the confirmation beyond the 2018 midterm election. Both support a woman's right to have an abortion and will be looking for assurances that the nominee would not overturn the Roe v Wade decision establishing abortion rights.
President Trump wants YOU for SCOTUS - if you're one of these two judges. Hardiman was on the president's short list when he nominated Neil Gorsuch to replace Justice Antonin Scalia.
Leo said that rallying Democrats on the issue of Roe v. Wade is a "scare tactic". He is seen as an "originalist" a conservative school that seeks to interpret the US Constitution based on the thinking of the country's founding leaders more than two centuries ago, and often takes narrow views in cases of individual rights. Previously, Collins voted for Gorsuch because of his belief in the significance of precedent.
Trump has also favored Brett Kavanaugh, who has years of federal experience and is described as a mild-mannered and fair-minded by conservative groups. Many, including Leo, believe that it was a major contributing factor to his victory in 2016. "My guess is that he will be a cautious judge, at least for a few years". Barrett is Catholic and was better known as a professor at Notre Dame before being named a federal judge a year ago.
"Let's say it's the four people, but they're excellent, everyone, you can't go wrong", Trump told reporters. But they're excellent. Every one. I'll be deciding tonight or tomorrow sometime by 12 o'clock, and we're all gonna be meeting at 9 o'clock.
