These two judges are favorites to win Supreme Court nod

Trump Expected to Unveil Supreme Court Nominee Monday Night Trump plays up suspense over momentous Supreme Court nomination
Patty Aguilar | 11 July, 2018, 04:27

On Monday, President Trump said he has selected his Supreme Court pick but won't reveal it until Monday night, according to CNN. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge. He is well-liked in the Senate and was personally recommended by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a good choice to support the president's nominee prep for one-on-one sessions on Capitol Hill. A former White House aide under Bush who previously worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, he faced a long confirmation battle when Bush nominated him to his current post.

Trump indeed said during the 2016 campaign that he would put "pro-life justices on the court", thrilling his grassroots base although polls show most Americans support abortion rights. And the government's task won't get any easier: A second deadline asks officials to reunite 3,000 older children in two weeks.

With customary fanfare, Trump unveiled his choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on prime-time TV. His final options were all young federal judges who could help remake the court for decades to come with precedent-shattering rulings on issues such as abortion, guns and health care.

Trump is said to have apparently lost interest in Kethledge. As a judge on the US Court of Appeals in Washington he has written opinions on some of the nation's most sensitive issues.

US President Donald Trump faces a strong fight from Democrats, who say they'll oppose his nomination for the new Supreme Court justice.

Three Senate Democrats voted to confirm Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, in April 2017: Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

Democrats want the Republicans to not vote until after the November election because they want to see if they can gain the majority.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) insisted Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press" that delaying Trump's nominee as a Democratic bloc is even more important than the reelection hopes of vulnerable red-state senators struggling to retain their seats by supporting the nominee.

Kavanaugh is a longtime fixture of the Republican legal establishment.

Barrett, 46, has the least judicial experience of the four, with only eight months as a judge after spending most of her career as a conservative legal scholar.

Trump is hoping to replicate his successful nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago. The president's attention in the coming days will be on meetings in Europe.

"Bob Casey is so blinded by partisanship that he is opposing a nominee for the Supreme Court before the pick is announced". Trump is expected to pressure recalcitrant Senate Democrats into supporting his nominee by holding rallies in their states. She is a graduate of Notre Dame Law School, where she was also a law professor before joining the federal bench. Over the past year, Justice Gorsuch has embodied the most sacred principles of the court, making impartial decisions based upon the Constitution.

On one front he has been clear, however - while he admires Kavanaugh's credentials, he is also concerned by his work in the Bush administration. Meanwhile, 24 percent bet on Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and 7 percent bet on Judge Raymond Kethledge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
