Sen. Cantwell weighs in on SCOTUS pick

Meanwhile, pro-choice Americans have begun sending coat hangers in bulk to Collins's offices-a grim reminder of one method women used to perform unsafe, illegal abortions before the Supreme Court passed Roe vs. Wade in 1973.

From a list of 25 candidates, President Trump said on Friday that he would announce his choice to replace Justice Kennedy on July 9. Though the case was not directly about abortion, groups favoring abortion rights worry that Hardiman's ruling signals his sympathies on the issue.

The senator has a couple of times threatened to withhold his vote on key Trump priorities citing ideological disagreements, most recently the nomination of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The Maine senator said there are names on Trump's list of potential nominees she couldn't support, whom she declined to identify.

"Raj Shah will oversee communications, strategy and messaging coordination with Capitol Hill allies", Sanders said in her statement. Collins asserts that a judge who respects precedent would not overturn Roe vs. Wade.

Japan failed to impress in their qualifying campaign, winning a weak group but dropping ten points in the process. However, he refused to look past Japan towards a potential quarter-final against Mexico or Brazil.

CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin disagreed with Scaramucci, saying the four potential justices all would vote against the decision, but "it's in their interest to sort of muddy the waters. they don't respect that precedent".

And it said a team of lawyers from the White House and Department of Justice are gathering information to assist Trump with the process. "I also suggested that he broaden his search". They would also be "very likely" to back weakening President Barack Obama's 2010 law that expanded health care coverage to millions of Americans, he said. Court watchers have been discussing the prospect of a conservative woman on the bench.

"The dogma lives loudly within you and that's a concern", Feinstein said, "when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for for years in this country".

While Kennedy was a conservative, he proved to be a somewhat unpredictable "swing" vote over his long career. Though the court said park rangers had violated his free speech rights, the case was not about the right to abortion itself. "Well, maybe someday it will be to the states". Lee was asked last week at a town hall meeting if he would consider shifting from the Senate to the Supreme Court: "I would not say no", he replied.
