Trump has chance to reshape Supreme Court

But Democratic strategist Rodell Mollineau said Democrats need to take a long look at how to talk to voters about the Supreme Court fight - adding it can't just be abortion and gun control.

Of the 25 names Trump has listed as potential justices, 17 have been confirmed by the Senate for federal judgeships, while two are pending.

Once approved, Supreme Court justices can serve in the position for the rest of their lives.

President Donald Trump the search for a replacement will begin immediately - and he'll pick from the list of possible justices he released during his campaign. It is arguable, indeed plausible, that Trump would not have won if Scalia had not died.

The 81-year-old Kennedy was was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1988 by Ronald Reagan.

"Failing to keep all Senate Democrats united would be a colossal failure of leadership that helps Republicans make abortion illegal, destroy our civil rights, shred the social safety net, poison the planet, and undermine our democracy". "Susan Collins can not simultaneously say she supports Roe v. Wade and support anybody on that list; that would be quite hypocritical". Joe Donnelly, Indiana, and Joe Manchin III, West Virginia, as they considered Gorsuch past year. In a statement, Heitkamp said she and Trump "had a solid discussion about the Supreme Court vacancy", adding that she "stressed the importance of nominating someone to the Supreme Court who is pragmatic, fair, compassionate, committed to justice, and above politics - traits that match Justice Kennedy and which I know are important to North Dakotans".

"Justice Kennedy's dedication to the law led him to a career of distinguished service to his country". Susan Collins, Maine Republican; Sen. Because he changed Senate rules a year ago, Supreme Court nominees can now be confirmed by a simple majority.

"There are lots of folks out there who assume because I've not been in line with lots of the President's policies, and certainly haven't condoned his behavior, that I should oppose everything, every one of the President's nominees or whatever", Flake told the Arizona Republic. Murkowski has supported all of the candidates nominated during her time in the Senate while Collins voted against one: Judge William Pryor of the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

Both will be the target of intense lobbying as Trump is expected to put forward a pick who would shift the court rightward, putting in play issues such as abortion, gay rights and the government's role in health care. In Missouri, McCaskill's Republican opponent made her Supreme Court stance a litmus test for the election.

Heitkamp, who was previously praised by Trump as a "good woman" before he campaigned against her in North Dakota on Wednesday, said following the meeting that she's still willing to hear him out on his court choice.
