What McConnell reportedly said about Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees

These two judges are favorites to win Supreme Court nod Trump Expected to Unveil Supreme Court Nominee Monday Night

Hardiman, who was runner-up to Neil Gorsuch as the president's Supreme Court pick past year, made a comeback on Trump's shortlist this weekend in part because of the president's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who serves with Hardiman on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Trump introduced Kavanaugh as "a judge's judge" and cited his "proven commitment to equal justice under the law" in his announcement Monday night live from the East Room of the White House.

Republicans representing northeast IN in Congress commended President Donald Trump for nominating federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh for a pending vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. He now works for the Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling.

Kyl represented the state of Arizona in the US Senate for 18 years, from 1995 to 2013. He served on the Senate Judiciary Committee during the confirmations of four of the last five justices who have joined the Supreme Court.

The White House has assembled a team to handle communications, strategy and messaging coordination to defend and push the nomination through on Capitol Hill.

The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN), whose leaders pushed Justice Neil Gorsuch over the finish line a year ago, are getting their war chests ready. In addition to Kavanaugh, in recent days he expressed renewed interest in Hardiman, the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking. Plus, he is a former law clerk to Kennedy, who switched sides quite a bit during his time on the Supreme Court.

At that time, 51 percent said President Obama should replace Scalia right away, but 43 percent said the choice should be left to the new president elected in November.

Indiana's Donnelly and Democratic Sens.

With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative.

Thank you so much for being with us, Senator Leahy.

Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of IN were invited for the announcement.

That increases the focus on two Republicans - Sen.

He called it the "fruit of a corrupt process straight from the D.C. swamp".

Multiple sources tell ABC News that as of Sunday, the final four individuals Trump is considering for the vacancy are Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman.

On the same day Kennedy announced his retirement, Casey took to Twitter, writing, "If an individual from the list provided to candidate Donald Trump by far-right organizations like the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society is nominated, then I am highly unlikely to support that nominee".

Hirono's comments come in contrast to what other Senate Democrats have said of the nominee.

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