He then introduced Kavanaugh, who shook hands with Trump before standing with his wife and two daughters.

"We believe we can stop a Supreme Court nominee", said Planned Parenthood's Dana Singiser, pointing to the organization's previous success lobbying against congressional efforts to cut its funding.

After moving into the White House in 2001, Bush recruited Kavanaugh as legal counsel before later naming him to the appellate court.

A weekly recap of the top political stories from The Globe, sent right to your email.

President Donald Trump is set to announce his pick for Supreme Court Justice on Monday night at 9 p.m., following the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. "Specifically, as a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, his nomination presents an existential threat to the health care of hundreds of millions of Americans".

Watch full coverage of the landmark decision TONIGHT at 9:00pm ET on Fox News Channel.

"I am concerned that he's making it like a game show", Sen. Eastern time during a prime-time address in the White House's East Room.

As of Sunday, Trump said he had yet to make a decision on who to nominate. Gorsuch and Kavanaugh clerked together. Meanwhile, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona is battling brain cancer and has not been back to the Capitol since December. Activists organizing on Twitter have even been sending wire coat hangers to Collins's offices, a grisly reminder of an increase in illegal abortions that would probably occur if Roe were overturned. He also has a deeper judicial record than she does. "This is a huge win for President Trump", Dr. Robert Jeffress, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, said in a statement.

"The far right has total control of the Congress, they have total control of the administration, now they want total control of the judiciary, and I'm just not going to allow that to happen and I'm going to keep fighting against it", he said. "Maine has its strong Trump core".

"I think Kavanaugh now raises too many questions", the source close to the White House said.


"This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee, and all four of these people are highly qualified, been on the court, know what they're doing, mainstream judges", Graham said.

There's buzz that he has plans to gut Roe V. Wade.

But McConnell said Monday that senators should give Kavanaugh "the fairness, respect, and seriousness that a Supreme Court nomination ought to command".

Two Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, are pro-abortion and have said they would vote against a candidate who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Kennedy's departure "leaves the court in a calcified state of a hardened left and right with nobody in that middle position", says Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University constitutional law professor.

The US Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter on contentious laws and disputes between states and the federal government.

Conservatives justices could shred abortion rights in different ways.

Appeals court Judge Thomas Hardiman was solidly in the mix as of Sunday after being first runner-up a year ago, said three people familiar with the process.

Trump also likes that he's written a book, reports Time, which also notes, however, that the president hasn't read it. "Whoever is nominated, whoever he or she is, if they're confirmed, they're going to be there for a long time". Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., would guide the nominee through the confirmation process, including preparing for meetings with senators.

"He made a point at the start of my clerkship to invite my parents down for a visit and that made such an impression on my dad", Mascott said. Like Trump's first nominee previous year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades to come with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of Obamacare.
