Collins made headlines this weekend when she told CNN she wouldn't support a nominee who "demonstrated hostility" toward Roe v. Wade.

The White House and Republican lawmakers, buoyed by the prospect of President Trump appointing his second Supreme Court nominee in his first term, are making it a campaign issue as well by pressing moderate and vulnerable Democrats to support Trump's pick. "For anybody who believes that the Constitution protects things like reproduction and LGBT rights this is bad - and we know it's bad because Donald Trump Jr.is happy", Oliver said, referencing Trump Jr.'s celebratory tweet on Kennedy's retirement.

"I want a judge that will apply the law to the facts of the case with fidelity to the Constitution", she said "Roe v. Wade is a constitutional right that is well-established, and no less an authority than Justice Roberts said that repeatedly at his confirmation hearing". Gorsuch was confirmed after Senate Republicans refused to hold hearings in 2016 on former President Barack Obama's nominee to replace Scalia, Judge Merrick Garland, though Collins had called on her colleagues to consider his nomination.

Abortion is not the only key issue Nelson worries about with a new Supreme Court justice. Pryor was a top finalist to replace Justice Antonin Scalia's seat previous year, but sources say Pryor has been eliminated this time around.

Collins also said Sunday that she has urged the president to expand his list of potential nominees, as there are a number of people on the list she believes do not respect judicial 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. Susan Collins of ME said she was not comfortable with everyone he has considered.

President Trump has begun interviewing possible nominees for the Supreme Court seat that will become open when Justice Anthony Kennedy retires at the end of the month.
