Some aides admitted that the president's method of picking Justice Anthony Kennedy's replacement may not be the best way.

Kavanaugh, 53, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit who has a background in politics. A Republican appointee, he has held the key vote on such high-profile issues as abortion, affirmative action, gay rights, guns, campaign finance and voting rights.

Working closely with a White House team and consulting with lawmakers and outside advisers, Trump has spent the week deliberating on the choice. He conducted interviews Monday and Tuesday. "She is not perceived as a Washington insider and that can be very powerful", said Ms.

On July 1, Trump said he narrowed the search to five candidates from a list of 25, which was vetted by the conservative Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society.

President Trump could potentially introduce a nominee who will overturn the long-standing ruling, and is expected to announce his decision on Monday.

But Trump is not rushing toward Coney Barrett with the same fervour, according to two people close to the president. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also spoke to the president about the merits and drawbacks of each nominee, including Kavanaugh.

The strategy is to convince Collins, who said she would not support a nominee who exhibits "hostility" toward Roe v. Wade, to vote against Trump's pick in hopes that other Republicans, including Sen. He was confirmed to the D.C. Circuit under President George W. Bush in 2006.

Cuccinelli's remark was a wry reference to another contender, Coney Barrett, whom social conservatives unsure about Kavanaugh have rallied behind this week. During his time on the bench, Kethledge has written or been part of some of the most notable cases to come before the Sixth Circuit although he did not play a role in that Circuit's decision in the same-sex marriage cases that were ultimately overruled by the Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges. Senate Republicans, however, would not consider the nomination in March, saying it had to wait until after the presidential election in November.

Kethledge graduated from the University of Michigan and received his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School. After her clerkship, Barrett worked in private practice and moved on to become a law professor at the Notre Dame Law School.

"Her clarity and intellectual strength in the Senate hearings for her current judgeship showed an intellect and a depth of thought that would be powerful on the Supreme Court", Gingrich wrote.

One group aligned with Democrats began running ads Thursday in the home states of Sens.

He pushed back against some conservative court watchers who said they feared Judge Kavanaugh would follow in the footsteps of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who could emerge as the ideological pivot of the next court and who angered conservatives by writing the crucial decision upholding most of Obamacare. Even if all 49 Senate Democrats vote no - hardly a given with red-state Sens. Susan Collins of ME, two relative centrists who have expressed concern over the dismantling of abortion rights in the U.S.

Collins said Trump told her at the meeting last week that he would not ask the candidates about whether they would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.
