  • Trump: I 'probably won't' ask Supreme Court nominees about Roe v. Wade

President Donald Trump is in the process of picking a replacement for outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and at least two MI judges are being closely considered.

Scott released a video ad Monday that deemed the Democrat a "rubber stamp" for President Barack Obama's judicial nominees and noted that he "voted against Supreme Court Justice [Neil] Gorsuch." referring to Trump's 2017 appointee.

Shah will take leave from the position of Trump's Deputy Principal Press Secretary to concentrate on getting the President's nominee through the Senate approval process, White House Spokesperson Sarah Sanders said.

NARAL Pro-Choice is also running a full page ad in all major ME newspapers, and digital ads specifically targeting Collins.

His republican opponent, Corey Stewart, has called on the president to nominate someone who will "move the court further in a conservative direction that respects the Constitution and our freedoms".

Sen. Bill Nelson shed his hyper-cautious reputation Monday, declaring that he expects to vote against President Donald Trump's nominee to succeed Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the Oval Office on Monday, he said the "four potential justices" he met that morning were "incredible people in so many different ways".

Trump's Supreme Court search begins, with youth a key factor
"I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific". Gorsuch was the youngest nominee since Clarence Thomas, who was 43 when confirmed in 1991.

The interviews were with federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amul Thapar, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett, said a person with knowledge of the meetings who was not authorized to speak publicly about them.

Trump has explicitly vowed in the past to appoint justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that affirmed abortion as a constitutional right, and his nominee following Kennedy's retirement will determine the majority of the high court for decades to come.

The Senate would have to confirm the nominee. A senior White House official said that Trump did not conduct any interviews with potential Supreme Court picks over the weekend.

Trump said he expects to meet with two or three additional candidates, and that an announcement is planned for next Monday. Justin Clark, director of the Office of Public Liaison, will oversee White House coordination with outside groups. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he didn't think Trump would be overly focused on the Roe ruling. Both Chief Justice John Roberts and Gorsuch, Trump's first pick to the high court, have indicated more broadly that they respect legal precedent.

But she is pro-choice and previously showed a willingness to go against the party, particularly in her vote against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act previous year.

Collins appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's "State of the Union", and Leo spoke on "Fox News Sunday".

And if the votes result in a tie, Vice President Pence will hold the tie-breaking vote-and his anti-abortion stance is well-known.
