President Trump to name second Supreme Court nominee in 2 years

Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine said Sunday that any judge who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade has an Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

The Republicans have slender two-vote lead in the 100-member Senate and at least one Senator from the party, Susan Collins has said that keeping abortions legal would be a requirement for her to support the Trump nominee and another, Lisa Murkowski, has previously opposed efforts to overturn the 1973 ruling.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump expressly promised that overturning Roe, which legalized abortion on demand in the US, "will happen" through his judicial nominees.

Liberal media outlets are already targeting a potential nominee to replace Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court as President Trump eyes potential picks. Though the case was not directly about abortion, groups favoring abortion rights worry that Hardiman's ruling signals his sympathies on the issue.

Trump is expected to announce his pick from the list, which now comprises over 25 judges from across the country, on July 9. He did not identify any of them.

But in this leak-prone White House, the President's choice will be guarded as closely as a wartime command.

Collins told ABC's "This Week" program, "I told [Trump] that I was looking for a nominee that would demonstrate a respect for precedent ..." It will also appear in Google and Twitter searches.

Trump said he interviewed four potential nominees to the Court on Monday, according to the Post.

The Senate would have to confirm the nominee.

CNSNews.com asked Paul on Friday whether he wants President Donald Trump to nominate a judge who thinks "an unborn child with a beating heart is a "person" entitled to equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment". "They don't like it", she said. Collins asserts that a judge who respects precedent would not overturn Roe vs. Wade.

"Well, maybe someday it will be to the states, you never know how that's gonna turn out, that's a very complex question", Trump answered.

Manchin, Donnelly and Heitkamp are Democrats from states Trump won in 2016.

An 11th-hour lobbying campaign is furiously underway, with the President and his team fielding calls from senators, conservative activists, donors and friends who are trying to argue the case for or against one of the leading contenders. They were the only Democrats to do so. His departure likely gives the court a conservative majority. Funny, GOP leaders have insisted all these years that abolishing Roe is what most Americans want. "We are excited about the opportunity of putting justices on the court who are going to look at the original intent of the constitution and rule in that manner", said Carol Trobias of the National Right to Life Committee.

While Kennedy was a conservative, he proved to be a somewhat unpredictable "swing" vote over his long career.

Schumer said that while Democrats don't control the Senate - Republicans have a 51-49 edge - most senators back abortion rights.
