How will Florida women fare after President Trump picks a SCOTUS nominee?

Of those, the shortlist is understood to have boiled down to four judges from various USA courts of appeal - Amy Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.

Kethledge, a former Kennedy law clerk, has sat on the 6th Circuit since 2008 after being nominated by George W. Bush.

The final hours of President Trump's decision-making on his second Supreme Court nominee are being described as hectic and unpredictable - and the president has still not made a decision.

Trump said on Sunday he not made up his mind yet but expected to do so by noon on Monday, ahead of his announcement at 9 p.m. If you're a cord cutter without a TV, you can stream it online on C-SPAN or via the embedded video below from PBS Newshour. Hardiman, a one-time cab driver from Waltham, Massachusetts who was the first member of his family to attend college, served alongside Trump's older sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, on the 3rd Circuit. She is a well-known conservative whose past comments on abortion drew attention at her Senate confirmation hearing.

Here's why: Kavanaugh's court rarely issues opinions on Monday.

The Democratic senator is up for re-election this year in a state Trump won in 2016. Jon Kyl of Arizona would guide the nominee through the Senate confirmation process. Leonard Leo, the vice president of the conservative Federalist Society who selected Trump's longlist of 25 candidates for the supreme court, told ABC's This Week that warnings about Roe v Wade were a "scare tactic".

"Remember, the President ran on the Supreme Court issue and that greatly enthused voters", Leonard Leo, who is now on leave from the Federalist Society, where he helped craft Trump's list of candidates, said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday. Unlike the current Justices, Hardiman doesn't have an Ivy League law degree - a fact Trump said on the 2016 presidential campaign trail was a positive factor for a potential nominee if he became President.

Donald Trump: US President to avoid London on controversial United Kingdom visit
Mr Johnson said trade would be high on the agenda for bilateral talks between Mr Trump and Mrs May at Chequers next Friday. He said Mr Trump and Mrs May have "a good relationship" and would discuss a wide range of topics at Chequers .

Within Republican ranks, Senator Susan Collins has already signalled she could break with her party if Trump taps someone hostile to the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that guaranteed women's access to abortion.

The Pittsburgh-based federal appeals judge was the runner up to Justice Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court nomination past year. Without Republican defections, however, Senate rules leave Democrats with scant options to block confirmation of Trump's nominee.

Casey says the list of judges Trump has used to find a Supreme Court nominee is the "fruit of a corrupt process straight from the D.C. swamp". In a recent case involving abortion and immigration, he wrote a decision that temporarily barred a pregnant teenager in immigration custody from obtaining an abortion.

"I don't think anyone should expect me to simply vote yes for this nominee, just simply because my state may be more conservative than others", Jones said.

"Certainly, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Barrett have a lot of name recognition among supporters of the president, and I think that ultimately, when people like them are nominated, you'll see a lot of folks line up", he said.

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, while not arguing against Kavanaugh on the merits, has spoken to the White House about the volume of material from the judge's career that would need to be pored through, potentially bogging down the confirmation, according to people familiar with the process.
