"I'm not going to vote for that person just because they're for Roe v. Wade", she said. Such an important decision and we're going to give you a great one. Also of interest are Amul Thapar, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati; Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk for Kennedy who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Coney Barrett, who serves on the federal appeals court in Chicago.

"All the hysteria over Trump and also this nomination has revealed the religious intolerance as well", Campos-Duffy said on "Fox & Friends".

Paul has told colleagues that he wouldn't vote in favor of Kavanaugh if the judge is nominated, citing Kavanaugh's role during the Bush administration on cases involving executive privilege and the disclosure of documents to Congress.

President Donald Trump has spoken with seven potential candidates and is set to announce his decision on Monday. That's according to a person with knowledge of the meetings who was not authorized to speak publicly about them.

"Trump has been loud and clear in saying he'd pick Supreme Court Justices to end Roe v. Wade", reads the ad.

The president has said he will not be asking possible nominees, whom he has already started interviewing, whether they would overturn Roe v. Wade.

And it said a team of lawyers from the White House and Department of Justice are gathering information to assist Trump with the process.

Conservative groups rallied around Barrett after her confirmation hearing past year featured questioning from Democrats over how her Roman Catholic faith would affect her decisions.

"There's little doubt from the movement perspective that Barrett would be an excellent choice".

"He needs to produce a nominee who is hard to criticize on objective grounds", says David Lat, founder of the legal website Above The Law, who is in contact with officials involved in the process.

McGahn will lead the overall selection and confirmation process, the White House said Monday, repeating the role he played in the successful confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago.

Mike Lee, R-Utah, whom Trump interviewed Monday, but by and large the leading candidates to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy come from the federal bench. "Her clarity and intellectual strength in the Senate hearings for her current judgeship showed an intellect and a depth of thought that would be powerful on the Supreme Court". I know her scholarly and professional work well; I have observed her speak and teach; I am familiar with her generosity in her academic, local, and parish communities. They would also be "very likely" to back weakening President Barack Obama's 2010 law that expanded health care coverage to millions of Americans, he said.

"I take the president at his word", said Daniel Goldberg, legal director for Alliance For Justice, a liberal legal advocacy group that has researched Trump's judicial nominees.

A major abortion-rights group is targeting moderate Maine Republican Sen.

At least one Republican, Susan Collins, has said that she would not vote for a nominee who supports the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a ruling that struck down laws restricting abortions. "Yet they have captured the Electoral College and the White House in only four of those races, and, largely as a result, now face the prospect that Republicans will control the Supreme Court for years, no matter how often a majority of Americans support Democrats in presidential contests".
