GOP Sen. Collins says Roe v. Wade case is "settled law"

President Donald Trump told reporters traveling aboard Air Force One late Friday that he intends to announce a Supreme Court nominee on July 9.

"I've got it narrowed to about five", he told reporters on Air Force One en route to his New Jersey golf club, where he said he plans to interview one or two candidates this weekend.

Kennedy, a key swing vote on the court, announced Wednesday that he would retire this summer. "Both of those moves are fully constitutional - both of them are dramatic violations of pre-existing norms - but they're both perfectly legal". "And from my perspective, Roe v. Wade is an important precedent and it is settled law".

Kennedy's news that he'll leave the court next month immediately activated a network of White House aides, congressional allies and outside advocates, all set for their second Supreme Court confirmation fight in two years.

Of the 25 names Trump has listed as potential nominees to the Court, Collins has supported all of the candidates nominated to a court during her time in the Senate except one, Judge William Pryor of the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

But Faris said the the plan was actually more viable than the history books would have you believe.

"I think that you will see continued White House outreach", Short said. "We're right in the middle of this president's very first term", McConnell said.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said Kennedy's retirement sets up a situation where "women's lives are at risk". But he says that the current news cycle has only strengthened his resolve the Democrats should pursue court packing in order to restore the balance of power in Washington. "I no longer care about that at all".

Democrats argue that the confirmation action should be put on hold until after the elections. Vice President Mike Pence can be called on to break a tie.

Murkowski, of Alaska, made no such promise. Republicans control the chamber but only by a slim majority, making the views of moderates, including some Democrats, important. Whomever Trump nominates is expected to sway the court to the right.

Trump met on Thursday with a group of six senators - three Republicans and three Democrats - to discuss the court vacancy, the White House said in a statement.

For Faris, the Democratic Party's insistence on maintaining these norms is tantamount ceding power to Republicans altogether. "I actually saw him on television last night where he said he'd love the job". "It's not as if those are the only matters that come before the Supreme Court".

But they have been consistent "yes" votes on Trump's picks for federal courts. Asked about Barrett, he said, "She's an outstanding woman".
