Conservatives Ready Their War Chests For Major Supreme Court Fight - Katie Pavlich

He expressed renewed interest in Hardiman - the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly.

FILE PHOTO: The U.S. Supreme Court is seen as the court nears the end of its term in Washington, U.S., June 11, 2018.

Speaking of the president's shortlist, which The Hill reported includes Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman, Graham suggested that any conservative Republican would be happy with the options-touting Hardiman in particular as a good choice.

Liberal horror and conservative delight about the implications of the pick have crystalized into a debate about the newly constituted court's potential to overturn Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that upheld a legal right to an abortion.

Barrett of IN, 46, serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

President Trump has decided on his nominee for the Supreme Court, a source with knowledge of the search told Fox News, though the name of the pick still is not known.

Kavanaugh is a former clerk to Anthony Kennedy, and was the principle author of the Ken Starr report on Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Hardiman, 53, has served on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2007, having been appointed by Republican former President George W. Bush, after four years as a U.S. district judge in western Pennsylvania. He claimed that due to how dysfunctional the two parties were, it is unlikely that many Democrats would support a Trump nominee.

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said opponents were using "40-year-old scare tactics" over abortion and other issues but they "will not stop us from doing the right thing". The New York Times reported Sunday that Trump found Kethledge a little boring and anxious about his record on immigration.

"Bob Casey was for Judge Hardiman before he was against him, showing yet again that Casey will oppose anything President Trump does, even if it means contradicting himself", Barletta said in a statement.

Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said he was bracing for a tough confirmation battle as Democrats focus on abortion.

"I think the path to confirmation for any of the final four is not a problem", he told CNN.

While Democrats are flailing, Trump can hardly lose.

The campaign is set to launch "as soon as the nominee is announced", according to Judicial Crisis Network.

The Commander-in-Chief said he was "looking forward" to unveiling his pick to join the Supreme Court Sunday evening, adding "an exceptional person will be chosen". "But this is really about the process and whether or not the corporate right is going to be in charge of picking the Supreme Court in a seat, in a nomination that's likely to tip the scales substantially".
