Leonard Leo, a leader of the conservative Federalist Society who is advising President Donald Trump on his Supreme Court pick, said Sunday it's a mystery whether one of the job's finalists would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Justice Kennedy, 81, recently announced his retirement from the U.S. Supreme Court.
The president plans to announce his choice for the job Monday night.
Trump is believed to have narrowed his shortlist down to just three or four candidates.
Kavanaugh, in his dissention, joined by two other GOP-appointed attorneys, said the majority on the court did give enough consideration to the Trump administration's claims that the girl should not have an abortion while being held in federal immigration custody. Amy Cohen Barrett, a circuit court judge, is the only woman on the candidate's list.
"Given their vision of a politicized judiciary, we should not be surprised when Democrats cry bloody murder at the announcement of the president's Supreme Court nominee", the retiring senator writes.
"Am I optimistic that [Trump is] going to nominate somebody that I would feel comfortable about?" said McCaskill. A handful of Democrats may face pressure to confirm Trump's pick because they face re-election in states Trump won in 2016. And if they don't wreak the vengeance now, with four and a half weeks - four and a half months to go before the election, they will not look very strong to their base and I think they'll be under attack and you'll see more Joe Crowley's go down.
A constitutional lawyer who met his wife while clerking for Chief Justice John Roberts, Hawley is in his element when he declares that McCaskill has "been wrong on every single court nominee since she has been running for the Senate or in the Senate".
