Trump Will Make Supreme Court Pick, Anthony Kennedy Successor On July 9

  • In Supreme Court pick, Trump can push conservative social agenda

In the event of a 50-50 tie, Vice President Pence would cast the deciding vote. That list includes six women.

The battle on Capitol Hill will essentially unfold in two phases, first centred on the nomination fight itself and then on the fallout for the November elections.

Few justices have continued their tenures on the court after the age of 80, and only 11 justices have served while they were older than Kennedy. You nominate someone who is like-minded.

Collins has a more reliable record in favor of abortion rights, and boasts a 70-percent vote rating in 2018 from Planned Parenthood's political arm.

Democrat Bill Nelson, asked by reporters if a nominee's views on Roe v. Wade will be important to him, said, "very".

Kennedy announced his retirement on Wednesday.

I don't know who this gentlemen is-he doesn't appear to be a member of the media-but his tweet was so downtrodden and hopeless, it earned a spot.

Kennedy joined both the conservative and liberal blocs of justices to provide a decisive vote in several landmark cases.




The road to confirmation for Trump's pick is likely to be a contentious one, as Democrats are expected to push back. Neither senator is known for telegraphing how they will cast their votes until right before the vote is called, so the spotlight will likely be on them in the months ahead. Both senators are Republicans.

The other senator who met with Trump, Republican Charles Grassley, is chairman of the Judiciary Committee, which will consider any Trump choice.

One person on that list of names is Utah Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and West Virginia Sen.

The Supreme Court job is for life.

Trump made clear during the presidential campaign that he would appoint justices who would oppose abortion.

He said Democratic senators running for reelection in conservative states, like West Virginia and in, face a "lose-lose" scenario: Risk angering their base voters by supporting Trump's pick, or vote no and harm their chances among the Republicans and moderates they still need to win. However, he invited her, Donnelly and Manchin to the White House the next day to discuss the nomination process. "As I said, I'm looking specifically at two women".

When the justice in the middle is ideologically distinct, it's harder for either side to form a majority coalition, which makes the median justice central in not just choosing a side but shaping the contours of the court's opinion.
