Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

Trump has said he would announce his nominee on July 9 and has reportedly been busy reading the writings and background material of some of the prospective candidates. She sounds like a very interesting woman. He added that he expects to meet with two or three more candidates, before announcing his pick. On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. criticized the record of U.S. Appeals Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett of IN, who is one of seven judges considered to be front-runners.

Speaking at an Anchorage news conference, Murkowski simply said she favored someone like Kennedy, who played a pivotal role with his swing votes.

Her traditional Catholic beliefs became a flashpoint last September during her confirmation hearing in the Senate.

She has spoken publicly about her conviction that life begins at conception, and in a 2003 law journal article, she argued that courts could be more flexible in overturning prior "errors" in precedent. Though the court said park rangers had violated his free speech rights, the case was not about the right to abortion itself.

"It will not happen on its own", the New Yorker wrote in an opinion column in Monday's New York Times.

Schumer's column appeared a day after Sen.

Sources say Collins specifically opposes federal Appeals Court Judge William Pryor, who once called Roe "an abomination". "So a nominee's position on whether or not they respect precedent will tell me a lot about whether they would overturn Roe v. Wade". "I think the person that is chosen will be outstanding". "But in the end, I'm confident we'll get the judge confirmed". Overturning that 1973 ruling would not make abortion illegal, but it would allow individual states to ban the procedure. But he told reporters on Friday that he would not question potential high-court nominees about their views on abortion, saying it was "inappropriate to discuss".

Instead, the choice of the next Supreme Court justice is in President Trump's hands.

Supreme Court justices are appointed for a lifetime term, making age a key factor in determining the court's makeup in the years to come.

President Trump has interviewed seven potential candidates as he looks to quickly fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Commentary: Kings, monarchs, dictators, Supreme Court justices - which one doesn't belong?

It's true elections have consequences, but the disjunction between the Senate majority that produces a very conservative court, on one hand, and, on the other, the public, derives in large part from lesser-populated red states providing a cushion for Republicans in the Senate (and hence the court) and the electoral college.

"All the hysteria over Trump and also this nomination has revealed the religious intolerance as well", Campos-Duffy said on "Fox & Friends". "You could be a woman and not be fair minded". "There are real stakes here".
