Casey to oppose Trump's Supreme Court pick

It also plans to run ads next week in Manchin's, Donnelly's and Heitkamp's home states with a softer tone, asking them to continue protecting people with pre-existing health conditions by opposing a nominee who'd threaten that. "Let's just say it's the four people".

The president made the remarks before boarding Air Force One in New Jersey Sunday, saying he is considering four candidates and can't go wrong with any of them. Hardiman was said to be the runner-up to succeed Antonin Scalia, the seat Neil Gorsuch eventually occupied after being confirmed in 2017.

All of the candidates are relatively young and could help shape legal doctrine on the high court for decades to come. He added: "I think they'd be fine justices of the Supreme Court".

Trump's approach to naming a new Supreme Court justice has unnerved some Democrats.

"I am concerned that he's making it like a game show", Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told NPR's Morning Edition. "I am thinking about this person". The White House said Monday that former Sen.

Democrats have little leverage as they try to halt the nomination - though the court's rightward lurch could stoke liberal turnout in the midterm elections in which the House of Representatives is in play. He is 51, and among all the reported short-listers, he is the only non-Catholic. Leo pointed out that in the 36 years after the decision, only one justice on the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas, has explicitly said that e would overturn Roe v. Wade. Barrett, in her mid-40s, is a judge for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals; she was nominated by Trump. Barrett is a former University of Notre Dame law professor, (and a graduate of the school; Kavanaugh meanwhile received his undergrad and law degrees from Yale).

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall - excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings a year ago, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience. Barrett has excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings past year, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions.

Such comments are likely to raise a red flag to moderate Republican senators like Susan Collins, R-Maine, who have said they would not vote for a nominee who has expressed doubts about overturning precedents when it comes to abortion and other long-standing Supreme Court decisions.

Hardiman, 52, attended Georgetown Law. "And I believe this person will do a great job", Trump said. He's been pushed into the spotlight in recent days, and the president reportedly likes his personal story (Hardiman was the first in his family to attend university, and drove a cab to pay his way through).

The new justice could sway cases that define the role of religion in public life, determine the scope of gun rights, endorse a more restrictive interpretation of civil rights legislation and further loosen regulatory constraints on big business.

Republicans are eager for conservatives to gain a firm majority on the court.

Since Kennedy declared his retirement almost two weeks ago, conservative groups have been gearing up for a battle of a lifetime as Democrats vow to do everything possible to block President Trump's choice. As an appeals court judge, Kethledge authored several notable opinions, including one that upheld the death penalty against a suspect who murdered a woman on federal land and a case in OH that questioned whether private citizens can sue the state for failing to enforce pollution controls.

Kavanaugh, 53, was first nominated to the appeals court by President George W. Bush in 2003. Kavanaugh worked in the administration of each President Bush and also for independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the investigation that eventually led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
