Trump to announce Supreme Court nominee on July 9

The White House said Trump's team also spoke with more than a dozen additional senators.

Joshua Henne, a Democratic strategist, said abortion would rise in importance among voters as people began to understand the stakes of the Supreme Court battle.

"Outside of war and peace, of course, the most important decision you make is the selection of a Supreme Court judge, if you get it". But he has promised to draw the next justice from a list of 25 prospective candidates that was first established during the 2016 presidential campaign and updated last fall, with advice from conservatives.

Some possible nominees being eyed include Thomas Hardiman, who serves alongside Trump's sister on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and Raymond Kethledge, a federal appeals court judge who clerked for Kennedy. "That's Hillary Clinton", Falwell said in a meeting of several hundred evangelical ministers in the summer of 2016.

Canada announces final list of retaliatory tariffs
The support measures are meant to help Canadian firms manage the tariffs as well as innovate for the future, he said. Overall, Ujczo said Canada's retaliatory tariffs have been baked into the White House's calculus for months.

The Supreme Court job is for life.

Like Collins and Murkowski, these Democrats are unlikely to reveal how they will vote until the nomination comes to the Senate floor. "You have to decide which one of the two that you would trust to appoint justices that are going to protect our religious freedom as Christians".

It's widely expected the next appointee could shift the current balance of Supreme Court to a more conservative-learning bench. Starting in the early 1960s with the Supreme Court's outlawing of prayer and Bible reading in public schools, religious conservatives have seen the court as hostile to their values.

For evangelical Christian leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr., this is their political holy grail.

And now, as the focus shifts toward the president's next Supreme Court nomination, evangelical leaders who once held their noses and voted for Trump have little doubt he will pick someone who shares their conservative views on abortion, same-sex marriage and other social issues.

Asked by Fox's Maria Bartiromo whether he would ask potential nominees how they might come down on Roe v. Wade, Trump said: "Well, that's a big one".

Speaking aboard Air Force One, the president said he will spend the weekend interviewing some candidates at his golf club in New Jersey. "Will they keep the abortion floodgates open or start to close them?" "And they are going to need cases that they can use to reverse those terrible decisions of the liberal majority in the past that have undermined the Constitution and really just abused our own personal rights".

The emphasis on the Supreme Court may have been more useful in providing cover for Trump's evangelical supporters than for Trump himself.
