Susan Collins of ME are moderate Republicans who support access to abortion services.

Since Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement last week, Democrats have argued President Trump should wait until after the 2018 midterm elections to nominate his replacement.

Brit Hume said the confirmation votes of two pro-choice Republican senators may decide whether President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee will be successfully installed on the bench. "They are outstanding people and they are really incredible people in so many different ways". "I had a very, very interesting morning".

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

At the other end Granit Xhaka hammered one shot narrowly over before Blerim Dzemaili followed suit. He previously appeared as a substitute in Sweden's wins against South Korea and Mexico.

Kethledge, 51, is a former Kennedy law clerk and appeals court judge who graduated from the University of MI and its law school.

The interviews come on Trump's first day back in Washington after spending the weekend at his golf club in New Jersey.

Elections have consequences. One effect of losing both the White House and the Senate - as the Democrats have done - is that the composition of the Supreme Court is likely to change in a way that Democrats won't like.

"Raj Shah will oversee communications, strategy and messaging coordination with Capitol Hill allies", Sanders said in her statement. "If chosen as the nominee, she will be the deciding vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and to strike down preexisting conditions protections in the ACA".

"I would not support a nominee who demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade because that would mean to me that their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law", Collins told CNN, also adding that the president had said he would not be asking nominees their opinion on the landmark case.

Republicans now control 51 seats in the Senate, which would ordinarily mean that Democrats have a pretty good chance at retaking the Senate during the midterms, when the president's party usually loses some seats in Congress. During the 2016 campaign, he predicted the law would be overturned during his presidency.

The public is also split on whether the Court has a partisan lean, with 31% saying it is too conservative, 19% feeling it is too liberal, and 41% believing it is just right. But he told reporters on Friday that he would not question potential high-court nominees about their views on abortion, saying it was "inappropriate to discuss".

Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, said she did not think picking a woman was "the top concern" of Trump, stressing judicial philosophy and experience.

Despite the move, the eight-time Wimbledon champion kept his Nike trainers on for his win over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic on Monday. As easy as the match was, it marked a landmark of sorts given it was Federer's first since the end of his sponsorship with Nike.
