Also on that list was Bob Young, a retired Michigan Supreme Court justice who briefly ran for U.S. Senate before taking on a role as Michigan State University's general counsel. The list has existed since Trump began searching for late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement at the beginning of Trump's presidential term, which ultimately led to the appointment of Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch. He also has said he will announce his nominee to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy July 9.

Republicans hold a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, meaning that they could theoretically approve a Trump nominee without any Democratic support. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, moderate Republicans who support access to abortion services and aren't up for re-election, making it less likely either will feel pressure to be in lockstep with the polarizing president.

His republican opponent, Corey Stewart, has called on the president to nominate someone who will "move the court further in a conservative direction that respects the Constitution and our freedoms".

"The person chosen will be outstanding", Trump said.

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". Lisa Murkowski of Alaska to vote against Trump's nominee. Even though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changed Senate rules a year ago to allow confirmation by simple majority, if Democrats hold together, he can not afford defections.

President Donald Trump said he interviewed four candidates for the Supreme Court vacancy on Monday morning and intends to make a decision in the next "few days". That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution, and not reading into the Constitution language that doesn't explicitly appear. "You know, usually, they don't say that", Trump told reporters last Friday, before calling Lee "very talented" and "very smart". 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.
