Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey opposes Supreme Court pick before final decision

Kavanaugh, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, is also a former Kennedy clerk.

He did however, let slip that four are under consideration, and most reports indicate the final candidates are current appellate judges Brett Kavanaugh of the DC Circuit, Amy Coney Barrett of the Seventh Circuit, Raymond Kethledge of the Sixth Circuit, and Thomas Hardiman of the Third Circuit.

"Justice Kavanaugh has the most experience but Justice Hardiman is the one that will get through the Senate more easily and he would bring better legal mind to the United States or in court than all four", Valentino told News10NBC.

As of Sunday, Trump said he had yet to make a decision on who to nominate.

In the course of the 2016 election, Trump made changing the face of the U.S. supreme court a key campaign pledge that was instrumental in firing up his base of right-wing conservative voters.

Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn't locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. Monday announcement from the White House.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago.

President Trump enjoys 'suspense' ahead of Supreme Court announcement

Mr Rai said: 'The complaint points out that (the accused) blackmailed and repeatedly raped the girl. The girl alleged that she went to file a complaint when her father was released from the jail.

Then McConnell and other Republicans reminded Trump of another political goal: the confirmation path of least resistance. At her recent confirmation hearing, however, she said it was never permissible for judges to "follow their personal convictions in deciding a case". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) told the president over the weekend that Hardiman and Kethledge would face the fewest obstacles to confirmation.

They include Judge Raymond Kethledge, 51, who sits on the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, who would puncture the Ivy League aura that cloaks the Supreme Court since he studied law at the University of MI and not Harvard or Yale.

Distinction: If Trump is looking to make history, Barrett could have some appeal.

Meanwhile, the conservative Judicial Crisis Network said it will launch a $1.4 million ad buy in four states - Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia - introducing the nominee in a favorable light. The group says it has reserved air time nationally and in those same states for another four weeks. Kavanaugh has ties to the Bush family, which has often drawn ire from Trump, but he has investigated the Clintons and recommended the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.

"This is a nightmare for red state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee - and all these candidates are highly qualified", Lindsey Graham, the senator from SC, told Fox News Sunday. Barry served alongside Hardiman as a federal appeals judge on the 3rd Circuit before stepping down previous year.

"This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee, and all four of these people are highly qualified, been on the court, know what they're doing, mainstream judges", Graham said. I'm open to voting no. I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here.
