Speaking Monday at an Anchorage news conference, Murkowski noted Kennedy's pivotal role on the court.
President Trump will announce his nominee for the next U.S. Supreme Court Justice this Monday and already outside groups from both sides of the political aisle are committing millions of dollars in advertisements surrounding what is expected to be a lengthy and rancorous confirmation battle. Trump said previous year he'd asked for input from the Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation on potential Supreme Court justices; Casey called them "hard-right organizations". Such a move would likely fire up Trump supporters eager for a rightward shift on divisive social issues such as abortion and gay rights.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine and Sen. There may be other justices who share that view, and if so, Collins and Murkowski could support the president's nominee in any event. In an unusually direct appeal to voters, he said that to block "an ideological nominee", people should "tell your senators" to oppose anyone from Trump's list.
One Twitter user posted a picture of her Amazon receipt for 100 coat hangers with the caption: "Sending these to Senator Collins as a reminder of what her legacy could be".
The shortlist is widely rumored to include U.S. Appeals Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett of IN; U.S. Appeals Court Judge Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania; U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh of Maryland, who formerly clerked for Kennedy; U.S. Circuit Judge Raymond Kethledge of MI; and U.S. Appeals Court Judge Amul Thapar of Kentucky, according to the Washington Post.
President Donald Trump said he "probably won't" ask potential Supreme Court nominees about whether they would overturn Roe v. Wade.
Collins, who has previously bucked party lines on other key issues such as health care, said she plans to have an in-depth conversation with the nominee.
All three voted for Gorsuch and met with Trump at the White House on Thursday to discuss the vacancy.
Trump's second appointment to the nation's high court, promised for July 9, is set to come from an unnamed pool that he told reporters last week has been narrowed to five people, including two women. Also of interest are Amul Thapar, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati; Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk for Kennedy who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Coney Barrett, who serves on the federal appeals court in Chicago.
Sanders added, asked whether Trump believed Roe to be "settled law:" "The President is not going to get into asking the candidates about specific cases, but he's looking for somebody that meets those qualifications that I just outlined".
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.
