Ted Cruz wants to pick Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee

"I think the single best choice that President Trump could make to fill this vacancy is Sen".

Trump, the former reality show star, even scheduled the formal "reveal" - 8 p.m.

No Supreme Court nominee is a completely safe bet.

As soon as Kennedy announced his retirement plans in late June, Democrats mobilized against Trump's eventual pick, arguing that anyone he selects would help roll back abortion rights, Affordable Care Act protections, same-sex marriage and scores of other decisions that have shaped modern America while ruling in favor of corporations and against under-represented minorities.

Trump, who conducted interviews with seven candidates earlier this week for the lifetime post on the top USA judicial body, is expected to announce his decision on Monday. Barrett holds an IN "seat" on the court, which hears cases IN the Dirksen Federal Building courthouse IN the Loop. She and her husband have seven children, one with special needs.

Barrett talks about her family in her introductory remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sept. 6, 2017.

Vice President Mike Pence also met with some of Trump's contenders in recent days, according to a person familiar with the search process. The Trump/Pence 2020 ticket wants to keep IN red. The opposition was handled brilliantly by Senate leadership who used the attacks to expose her opponents as intolerant, tone-deaf, religious bigots.

Neymar then showed his unselfish side, crossing for Robert Firmino to score in the 88th minute. It turned out to be pure histrionics.

Kavanaugh, 53, was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 2006 by President George W. Bush, for whom he previously worked in the White House.

NPR's Nina Totenberg and Mara Liasson put it this way on Thursday: Trump has "Kavanaugh and Barrett as the top two at this moment".

Garland serves on the influential U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, along with leading high court canidate Brett Kavanaugh. But the tactical approach in question - appealing directly to the American public - speaks to the extent to which the court of popular opinion has become a formidable force in US politics in the aftermath of Trump's election. The GOP holds a narrow 51-49 margin in the Senate.

"I think I've made it pretty clear if a nominee has demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade and has said that they're not going to abide by that long-standing precedent, that I could not support that nominee", Collins told reporters at a holiday parade in Bangor.

Trump is looking for insurance. Joe Donnelly, Joe Manchin and Heidi Heitkamp in tough reelection fights - they would need both Murkowski and Collins to stop the appointment. He will face intense pressure to vote for the Trump selection. In other words, a nightmare for the Democrats. Furthermore, when White House staff read the book Kethledge co-authored with Michael Erwin on leadership through history, they will conclude not just that he's a attractive writer but also that his core is not for changing. It's precisely the kind of knee-jerk loyalty test to the Left that Republican challengers in those states will highlight to tell voters that they're really voting for Schumer and Nancy Pelosi if they re-elect people like Joe Manchin and Claire McCaskill.

Since Trump said his short list includes at least two women, speculation has focused on Barrett, a former law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia and a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who serves on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.

Collins' vote could be crucial to the success of a nominee.
