  • Washington. President Trump is expected to announce his choice for Supreme Court Justice Monday evening

We're just hours away from President Trump making his official announcement from the White House about who will replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn't locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. Monday announcement from the White House.

The President released an updated list last fall of 25 choices, including Judges Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman, who are believed to be included on Trump's shortlist for the nomination. Conservative figures have expressed a variety of opinions about which potential Justice would have the best impact on the next generation for the Court. Kavanaugh, who serves on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, is expected to be less receptive to abortion and gay rights than Kennedy was. "They're excellent. Every one you can't go wrong". He helped finance his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

J.J. McCullough of National Review argues that a "more rightward Supreme Court will yield many good things, yet political enthusiasm for outcomes should not supersede all other concerns".

Live: US President Donald Trump announces his pick for the Supreme Court.

Trump's aides have prepared briefing books and booked television spots for whomever he picks, anticipating that they'll have little time to spare between his decision and the reveal, sources tell ABC News.

On Monday, Trump phoned Justice Kennedy to inform him that his former law clerk would be nominated to fill his seat.

Outside adviser Leonard Leo, now on leave from the Federalist Society, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that this kind of jockeying is standard, noting that "every potential nominee before announcement gets concerns expressed about them by people who might ultimately support them".

With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative.

But as the first Democrat to represent his state in the Senate since 1992, Jones, who defeated scandal-plagued Republican nominee Roy Moore in a special election last December, is expected to come under considerable pressure in the Supreme Court battle. The ads will simply tell viewers who the nominee is and explain why they are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.

In the late 1990s, Kavanaugh played a lead role in the aggressive investigation of President Bill Clinton led by independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr. Three Democrats up for re-election in states Trump won by double digits in 2016 - Indiana Sen.

The White House noted Kyl served on the Senate Judiciary Committee "during the confirmations of 4 of the last 5 justices who have joined the Supreme Court".

Numerous activists who showed up at the protest showed frustration with the New York Democrat for not showing up to a scheduled town hall last week to address their concerns.

"I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation", Leo said on "This Week" Sunday, saying "nobody really knows" how Trump's nominee would rule on abortion if it ever arose.
