Hardiman is a "late addition" to Trump's final four, per the New York Times, but he was the runner-up to Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago.

"Justice Kavanaugh has the most experience but Justice Hardiman is the one that will get through the Senate more easily and he would bring better legal mind to the United States or in court than all four", Valentino told News10NBC.

As others speculated about his nomination to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, Trump had little to say about his choice, who could cement a conservative majority on the court for years to come. Donald Trump could nominate George Washington or John Marshall and they couldn't get through. In addition, she is the youngest of the leading candidates, and Trump has said he wants his nominee to serve for decades.

Check back in with Mediaite for coverage of Trump's decision tonight. But almost all Senate Democrats and many Democratic voters are expected to oppose Trump's nominee.

Several senators in states where Trump won big in 2016, like Jon Tester in Montana, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Joe Manchin in West Virginia, are caught between the party's riled up liberal base and their own socially conservative voters. Sherpas to the nominee will act as a guide during the confirmation process - helping to set up meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and preparing for the eventual confirmation hearing.

The conservative Judicial Crisis Network is set to launch a $1.4 million ad buy on behalf of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

With a slim one vote majority in the Senate, any GOP defections could prove problematic in winning confirmation for Trump's eventual choice, that is if Democrats hold together in opposition.

After winning confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago, Trump has teased his latest options for days, after narrowing down his list of prospects to four federal appeals-court judges: Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman. The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen. The court could also be called upon to render judgment on issues of personal significance to Trump and his administration including matters arising from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russia-related investigation and several civil lawsuits pending against Trump.

Kensington Palace has yet to release the guest list, but royal christenings are usually small affairs. Charlotte, now three, was baptised at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, Norfolk.

The White House hopes Kyl's close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path for Mr. Trump's eventual selection to win confirmation.

The decision - awaited eagerly by his conservative supporters, and with trepidation by his liberal opponents - was to be announced at 9:00 pm (0100 GMT Tuesday) in a prime time address from the White House.

Support for nomination: Barrett also served as a law clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who is beloved by conservatives.

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens.

Brett Kavanaugh of Washington, D.C.

Over the weekend, Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, reportedly told Trump that Kethledge and Hardiman likely face the fewest obstacles in the confirmation process.

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 past year.
