MI judge reportedly on final list for Trump's next Supreme Court pick

Susan Collins indicating that's what she intends to do.

"Well, I think it's a little too early to be talking about legacy", McConnell said with a smile as he left the Senate chamber.

"I think many on the right feel in particular that Anthony Kennedy, while broadly on the conservative side, was not as consistent as he might have been, and that the nominee of Donald Trump will have the court be much more consistently five votes in the conservative direction", said John Fortier with the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington.

A Kentucky federal judge is no longer in the running to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Cruz's antidote to the mistakes of the past is to pick a nominee who is a known factor, someone who is "battle-tested, ready, and willing to serve: Sen".

The Washington Post identified them as Amul Thapar, Brett M. Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge.

It was less than 18 months ago that Trump named Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Still, there are some whose allegiance to the Federalist Society agenda is largely about social issues such as abortion.

In working out the timeframe, it's worth noting that the Senate will be dealing with an end of September deadline if they're going to get a nominee on the Court before Congress is scheduled to recess for the campaign and before the new Supreme Court term begins on Monday, October 1st. The announcement is likely to set off a major confirmation battle in the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow majority and opposition Democrats say they are ready for a fight over Trump's court pick. In practice, that means that 51 votes, rather than 60, are needed to confirm nominees.

Belgium vs Japan: 5 things to look forward to
ROSTOV-For the second World Cup in succession, Belgium has swept through the group stage with three wins and stylish football. Teams such as Brazil or Mexico could await them in the quarterfinals, while France or Uruguay loom further down the line.

"We only have 49 votes", one Democratic aide familiar with the messaging strategy tells TIME. And two of Kavanaugh's opinions upheld Obama's Affordable Care Act.

In Tyler v. Hillsdale County Sheriff's Dept., all 15 judges of Kethledge's court reheard an earlier panel decision and ruled 9-6 in favor of Clifford Tyler, a MI man a magistrate sent for a brief stay at a mental health facility after his children found him distraught on learning his wife of 23 years had run off with another man - and his life savings - and called the police, fearing their father might harm himself. Ten are women, nine of them white.

And all that has to happen is Republicans need at least 50 "yes" votes. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also spoke to the president about the merits and drawbacks of each nominee, including Kavanaugh.

The pressure on Collins and Murkowski is just starting.

Many of these questions surrounded Barrett's Catholic faith-she is a member of a Catholic revivalist group called "People of Praise," in which members swear an oath of loyalty and give each other input on personal life decisions-and some anxious this would influence her political opinions.

That would be someone like Marty Walsh, of Glendale, Mo., who came to the McCaskill event and describes himself as "pro-life" - a former seminary student who studied the Roman Catholic viewpoint on the issue.

Republicans have often been seen as taking greater interest in the judiciary than Democrats. They have no one to blame but themselves. "It's pretty easy - we just did all the work on these people". They've done it before when Trump judicial nominees were undergoing Senate scrutiny in 2017.

He will tap a conservative judge to rally Republican voters in a midterm election year. "We're more focused on making sure that we have judges that look at the facts of the case and apply the law".
