"We are close to making a decision", said Trump. But he did make his pick, according to a person who was not authorized to speak publicly and commented only on condition of anonymity.

Hardiman, who lives in Pennsylvania, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, where he served at one time with Trump's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry.

After winning confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year, Trump has teased his latest options for days, after narrowing down his list of prospects to four federal appeals-court judges: Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman. He namechecked Leo's Federalist Society and the rightwing Heritage Foundation.

While the president has been pondering his pick, aides have been preparing for a tough confirmation fight.

The White House announced Monday that former Sen. Her work included attending meetings with Gorsuch on Capitol Hill and serving as a public face for the nominee while the Senate deliberated his candidacy.

Kyl, a former member of Republican leadership, served on the Senate Judiciary Committee before retiring in 2013.

In return, Hogue said, senators should demand of the nominee in the course of the confirmation process that they give an affirmative declaration that they would uphold Roe v Wade. Hardiman was on the president's short list when he nominated Neil Gorsuch to replace Justice Antonin Scalia.

Both parties are meeting separately later Sunday to decide how to proceed. She could try to form a minority government, or seek a new election.

From a reported list of 25 Supreme Court candidates, Trump said he has narrowed his choices. Momentum appeared to be with Kavanaugh and Hardiman, though the process remained fluid.

The real players are folks like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose late-hour political jockeying upended the notion that the high court spot was D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh's to lose. He helped finance his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

But the president has also been impressed by Kavanaugh, the most experienced judge on the list, having penned almost 300 decisions on the second-most powerful court in the country; as well as Barrett, a devout Catholic, who has become a hero of religious conservatives after having her membership in a conservative religious organization questioned by Sen. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions.

In this image from video provided by C-SPAN, Raymond Kethledge testifies during his confirmation hearing for the 6th U.S. Circuit Court on May 7, 2008.

If the Senate confirms Trump's nominee, we will be stuck with a Court that sides with big corporations over the American people. Dick Durbin of IL on NBC's "Meet the Press" said Sunday. So it is quite possible that Judge Barrett could vote to overturn Roe v. Wade as a Supreme Court justice, even though now in her current role she is obligated to respect it as settled law. If either were to signal they could be a "no" vote, then there will be tremendous pressure on the three Democrats above to get in line and oppose the nominee's confirmation. "And I expect we will do that on sort of a normal timetable, a couple of months".

"The four people - they're excellent, every one", Trump told reporters yesterday en route to the White House from his Bedminster, N.J., estate, where playmaking by lawmakers, conservative advocates and others reached a fever pitch over the weekend.
