But almost all Senate Democrats and many Democratic voters are expected to oppose Trump's nominee. Hardiman, 52, who was also appointed by Bush, serves on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

He recently voiced disagreement with a court decision allowing a teenage unauthorized immigrant to get an abortion.

The coming battle over a Supreme Court nominee promises to be a bruising one. I believe, if confirmed by the Senate, Judge Kavanaugh will interpret the Constitution as written, and I don't think he will attempt to make law from the bench.

With reality television-style suspense, he had kept everyone guessing up until the last moment.

The high court handed Trump and his administration a series of victories in its term that ended on the day of Kennedy's retirement, including a major decision upholding the president's travel ban targeting people from several Muslim-majority countries.

Trump is set to announce his choice Monday night.

Ambulance Leaves Thai Cave on 2nd Day of Rescue Operation
The operation began at around 11 a.m. local time on Monday and is expected to finish for the day around 9 p.m, reported the BBC . According to the Associated Press , a Thai official revealed that the healthiest boys were taken out of the cave first.

In the 1990s, Kavanaugh worked on prosecutor Kenneth Starr's investigations of President Bill Clinton, which led to impeachment proceedings.

Judge Kavanaugh, 53, has significant Washington credentials.

When ruling on Seven-Sky v. Holder, Kavanaugh dissented from the majority opinion that the law's individual mandate - which compelled every American to have health insurance or face a fine - was constitutional. There are two aging liberals on the court.

It rules on such issues as abortion, the death penalty, voter rights, immigration policy, campaign finance and racial bias in policing.

Each of the nine justices has a lifetime appointment.

The crux of the conservative disagreement over Kavanaugh's Obamacare record comes from a single decision in 2011.

Kavanaugh is likely to be more conservative than Justice Kennedy on a range of social issues. But Judge Kavanaugh may not be so accommodating. The group's spending, which is focused on Democratic senators, will probably climb over the coming months to match the $10 million spent to support Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination past year.

The front-runner was a front-runner for a reason. And the president moved swiftly to fill those openings with young, conservative judges.

With Democrats determined to vigorously oppose Trump's choice, the Senate confirmation battle is expected to dominate the months leading up to November's midterm elections. Trump's fellow Republicans hold a 51-49 Senate majority, leaving them little margin for error.

With Senator John McCain battling cancer in his home state of Arizona, Republicans can now only muster 50 votes. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., a longtime member of the Judiciary Committee.

'Democrats are going to look for any reason that they can poke at and find to try to delay this nomination, ' said White House spokesman Raj Shah Tuesday morning.

"The way we're looking at it is this: If we do a good enough job, we'll make it obvious enough that Collins or Murkowski will be the deciding vote on whether Roe v. Wade is overturned", one Democratic aide told TIME last week, referring to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case on abortion.

Many conservatives are disappointed that President Donald Trump did not nominate Amy Coney Barrett or Sen.

All eyes on which senators?

Republicans will target three Democrats facing re-election in conservative states where Trump won big majorities in the 2016 election - Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of in - to support Kavanaugh.

But any Republican defections could be offset by centrist Democrats campaigning for re-election in conservative-leaning states Trump won handily in 2016. All three joined with Republicans in confirming Justice Gorsuch. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and each of the three Republican candidates for the seat being vacated by Sen.
