U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, said Monday he will oppose appointing whoever President Donald Trump nominates to the Supreme Court.
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.
Trump is said to have apparently lost interest in Kethledge.
They're all younger than 55 and conservative enough to make a first cut.
The White House guest list for the Monday night announcement includes Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and another committee member, John Kennedy, R-La.
Kennedy's replacement also could be more willing to allow states to carry out executions and could support undoing earlier court holdings in the areas of racial discrimination in housing and the workplace. But he had made his final decision, according to a person with knowledge of the president's thinking who was not authorized to speak publicly.
Hardiman, 53, has served on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2007, having been appointed by Republican former President George W. Bush, after four years as a U.S. district judge in western Pennsylvania.
Hardiman could also have one important advocate. She considers federal appeals from Wisconsin, Indiana and IL and hears the cases in the Dirksen Federal Building courthouse in Chicago's Loop.
Interested in Supreme Court?
"And that's really ultimately what drives the conservative legal movement..." Barrett was appointed by Trump to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals past year.
Barrett is considered the favorite of social conservatives, including pro-life activists. The person Trump will nominate at 9 p.m.is in line to create a clear 5-to-4 conservative majority on the nation's highest 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 a result, Democrats have accused Republicans of stealing a Supreme Court seat. The two groups were key in developing the list of candidates used by President Trump to make a decision. Not long after Schumer spoke, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused the "far left" of engaging in "scare tactics" over the nominee.
President Trump has decided on his nominee for the Supreme Court, a source with knowledge of the search told Fox News, though the name of the pick still is not known. Democrats are voicing alarm about what the new justice could mean for charged issues such as abortion rights and gay rights.
