The financial disclosures for possible Supreme Court nominees

Trump has said he is focusing on up to seven potential candidates, including two women, to fill the vacancy created by Kennedy, a swing vote on the nine-member court.

President Trump must walk a fine line in selecting a Supreme Court justice as he pursues a route that will result in confirmation in the narrowly divided Senate ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, and Collins seems to enjoy the leverage her critical role in that process brings. He said he found it "distracting" to his work in 2016 when he found himself on Trump's short list of nominees to replace Scalia, a job that eventually went to Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Democratic voters will support Republicans because of ICE criticism Coney Barrett, Kavanaugh among candidates who met with Trump: report Trump administration recommends against allowing China Mobile access to USA market MORE on Tuesday spoke to another three possible Supreme Court nominees, bringing the total number to seven. Susan Collins are moderate Republicans who support access to abortion services.

Trump said he will name his nominee for the court by next Monday.

One Twitter user posted a picture of her Amazon receipt for 100 coat hangers with the caption: "Sending these to Senator Collins as a reminder of what her legacy could be". He met Monday with four federal appeals court judges: Brett M. Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Amul R. Thapar and Raymond Kethledge, according to multiple media reports.

McGahn will lead the overall selection and confirmation process, the White House said Monday, repeating the role he played in the successful confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year. "Is it fair to say that the president won't pick someone who has a record of opposition to Roe v. Wade?".

"There is keen interest in those two, but there are at least a couple of others who are still very seriously in the mix", said the person.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Justin Clark, director of the Office of Public Liaison, "will oversee White House outreach with key constituencies, coalitions, grassroots organizations and allies".

Trump is expected to begin his search in earnest this week at the White House and said the process could include interviews at his golf club before he reaches a final decision following the Fourth of July holiday. Both Chief Justice John Roberts and Gorsuch, Trump's first pick to the high court, have indicated more broadly that they respect legal precedent.

"I think he's absolutely brilliant, with the right temperament", McConnell said Saturday, but added that he had no idea whom Trump will pick. That judicial approach typically involves a more literal interpretation of the Constitution as compared to broader rulings such as Roe.

The Republican has been sent coat hangers by pro-abortion activists.

And if the votes result in a tie, Vice President Pence will hold the tie-breaking vote-and his anti-abortion stance is well-known.

Collins appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's "State of the Union", and Leo spoke on "Fox News Sunday".
