Trump narrows list for Kennedy replacement; will announce pick July 9

President Donald Trump plans to announce his pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9.

President Trump said Sunday he probably won't question prospective Supreme Court nominees about their views on the landmark abortion decision of Roe v. Wade. Kennedy announced his retirement Wednesday, in part to give the Senate time to consider a nominee and hold votes before the midterm elections in November.

There are two other names that have been floated as front-runners in addition to Kavanaugh, Barrett and Thapar: 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Thomas Hardiman, who was the runner-up to Neil Gorsuch on the president's first Supreme Court pick; and 6th Circuit Court of Appeals' Judges Raymond Kethledge.

"And probably not. They're all saying, 'Don't do that, you don't do that, you shouldn't do that, ' but I'm putting conservative people on".

Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, described a similar timeline on Friday in an interview with Fox News.
