Trump says he's narrowed Supreme Court nominees to 2 or 3

Writer David French offers: "I have my concerns [about Kavanaugh], and those concerns are rooted in two cases that have been oft-misrepresented in the debate but are consequential nonetheless. And I think of the four people I have it down to three or two", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One. Manchin said in a statement he would meet with and evaluate Trump's nominee, adding that he is open to backing the right selection. We urge President Trump to choose a nominee who will be not just good, but great in the mold of Justice Antonin Scalia, and the potential nominee who most fits that profile is Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Speculation has swirled around 46-year-old appellate judge Amy Coney Barrett as a potential pick for the high court.

"You might have had a history of the other side using the courts as an issue", said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a leading national abortion rights advocacy group.

The person says Schumer told Trump he could unify the country by nominating Merrick Garland.

But the President did name them or the ones he was planning to interviiew.

"Two issues of ... profound outcome, which could well defeat a nominee who opposes them, are the fate of affordable health care and a woman's freedom to make the most sensitive medical decisions about her body", he wrote in a New York Times op-ed Monday.

"Americans know that when a baby's heart is beating, she's alive, but our state judges aren't willing to protect her life", Chuck Hurley, a vocal opponent of abortion rights in Iowa, proclaimed from the Iowa Capitol steps in Des Moines. As Trump's announcement nears, many have the future of Roe v. Wade top of mind.

Brian Fallon, Demand Justice's executive director, said the group plans spots next week in Manchin's, Donnelly's and Heitkamp's home states asking them to continue protecting patients with pre-existing conditions by opposing a nominee who'd threaten that.

Lee, he said, would be a "sure thing".

Read the full story at Fox News. And among other reasons he cited how that will help, he said when the Roe v. Wade ruling is overturned, which he hopes it will be, "it would be better if it were not done by only male justices, with every female justice in dissent".

"This will be a defining moment for President Trump's legacy", Cruz wrote.

President Donald Trump is nearing a decision on a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy after a weekend of deliberation at his New Jersey golf club. That's according to a person familiar with Trump's thinking who was not authorized to speak publicly.

The President conducted interviews on Monday and Tuesday and has spoken to seven possible candidates.

The Maine Republican, whose support of Trump's nominee will likely prove critical to confirmation of the lifetime appointee to the nation's court, repeated Wednesday that she would not comment on support for potential candidates.

Kennedy was often a member of five-to-four majority decisions on the high court, and now conservatives see a chance to solidify their majority on the Supreme Court for years to come. He has not yet publicly indicated that he has narrowed the list and could still consider others in the mix, and ONN reports Vice President Mike Pence has also met with some of the contenders for the Supreme Court vacancy.

Trump could decide (decide not announce) sooner rather than later, as early as Friday, though the official announcement is still slated for Monday. Viewed warily by his party's conservative base, Trump has been keen to note that all of his picks have been vetted by conservative groups like the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society.

The sentiment, echoed by evangelical leaders across the country after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, underscores the delicate politics that surround a moment many religious conservatives have longed for.
