The Hill's Latina Leaders spotlights 2018 candidates Conservative groups prepared to spend big to boost next Supreme Court nominee Senate set for intense fight over Trump's pick to replace Kennedy MORE (W.Va.) and Heidi HeitkampMary (Heidi) Kathryn HeitkampTrump: Heitkamp will be "told" to vote against any nominee to replace Kennedy Trump stokes feud with Waters at North Dakota rally WATCH LIVE: Trump holds rally in North Dakota after Kennedy retirement announcement MORE (N.D.), who are all running for reelection this year in states Trump won in 2016. While Senate Democrats are likely to oppose any Trump nominee, rejecting a female candidate in the midst of a midterm election campaign could complicate their work. The group included Sen. Kennedy was considered a swing vote and a balancing figure in a US Supreme Court tied 4-4 between conservative and liberal justices, and Trump's pick to replace him, mainly on the basis of conservative credentials, will profoundly effect the life of every American for the next few decades in areas ranging from marriage to reproductive rights to gun control.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Thursday evening Trump also met with Sens.

Many observers are intrigued by Judge Barrett, a former Notre Dame Law School professor who was pressed by Senate Democrats at her confirmation hearing a year ago over her Catholicism's impact on her judicial views.

He'll need both of their votes to confirm his eventual nominee, given that Republicans have a slim 51-49 advantage in the upper chamber and Sen. "And that's exactly what happened today", she added. "That's what you need and that is Kevin Cramer". Of note, the Judiciary Committee does not have any Democrats who look as if they may jump ship and vote with Republicans on Trump's nominee.

"Will Republicans and President Trump nominate and vote for someone who will preserve protections for people with pre-existing conditions, or will they support a justice who will put health insurance companies over patients, or put the federal government between a woman and her doctor", Schumer said. Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, Susan Collins, of ME, and Chuck Grassley, of Iowa.

Rep. Jayapal arrested at Washington D.C. immigration protest
Hundreds of women chant " we care " in the Hart Senate Office Building. "Shame! Shame!" at the Trump International Hotel. Organizers of the D.C. rally also plan protests in 351 congressional districts around the country.

Eight other potential nominees on Mr. Trump's list are younger than 55. The top contenders seem to be Amy Coney Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge and Amul Thapar, all of whom are well-respected conservative judges.

The longest-serving Supreme Court justice in history was William O. Douglas, nominated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939. Out of the past 37 Supreme Court nominees since 1945, 23 of them served as circuit court nominees. "When the president presents the Senate with his choice for the Supreme Court, I will thoroughly review the record and qualifications of that nominee", Donnelly said in a statement Thursday.

Democratic strategists say the party needs to model its resistance to the successful fight Democratic senators waged in 1987 against Judge Robert Bork, President Ronald Reagan's pick for the Supreme Court. Immigration has been one of the president's most focused topics since he announced his presidential campaign.

"I think that you will see continued White House outreach", Short said.

Judge Hardiman, though, had an impressive 95-0 confirmation vote in 2007 after he was nominated to the circuit court by President George W. Bush. That could suggest he is a consensus nominee - someone whom Democrats could get behind.
