Trump's Supreme Court Shortlist Narrows To 3 Finalists

Trump's Supreme Court Shortlist Narrows To 3 Finalists Trump's Supreme Court Shortlist Narrows To 3 Finalists

By choosing to retire with Trump in office, Kennedy has opened the door for a conservative to be his successor, possibly altering the Court's balance for years. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are the only two Republican senators who back abortion rights and hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, meaning Trump needs all of them for his nominee to be confirmed without the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Mike Pence.

Working closely with a White House team and consulting with lawmakers and outside advisers, Trump has spent the week deliberating on the choice.

Trump has interviewed seven candidates, but narrowed the field to three top contenders, according to the Associated Press.

To Cruz, Lee stands out as a consistent constitutionalist, respected by his colleagues in the Senate, and a candidate who would keep Trump's promises to the American people to "nominate justices 'in the mold of Scalia and Thomas'". Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also spoke to the president about the merits and drawbacks of each nominee, including Kavanaugh. Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a friend and ally of the Utah senator, wrote an op-ed for Fox News on Thursday arguing that Lee should be the pick.

As the President vets candidates who could become his next Supreme Court justice nominee, Trump's level of comfort with each candidate is a key factor, according to Axios.

On Wednesday, Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, reiterated that she could not vote for a nominee with a "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a woman's right to an abortion. Both senators supported all three of Trump's reported finalists when they were nominated as circuit court judges. The source said he would not be surprised if Trump firmed up his choice before leaving for a trip to Montana later on Thursday. A graduate of University of Michigan Law School, he clerked for Kennedy in the late 1990s and advised Republican Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan. Some conservative groups have objected to Kavanaugh over a past ObamaCare ruling. Lee was asked last week at a town hall meeting if he would consider shifting from the Senate to the Supreme Court: "I would not say no", he replied. Kethledge, of MI, is a judge on the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. "I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade", Collins said.
