Trump says he will announce Supreme Court pick on July 9

If a reshaped Supreme Court tosses abortion decisions back to states several would move fast to outlaw the procedures

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin predicted on Wednesday that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement and vacating a spot for President Donald Trump to fill meant Roe v. Wade, the landmark case establishing the right to abortion access, was "doomed".

"I've got it narrowed to about five", Mr. Trump said during an Air Force One flight to New Jersey where he'll spend the weekend at one of his golf clubs.

But McConnell made sure to explain that past presidents have appointed Supreme Court justices during midterm years, including former Presidents Obama, Clinton, and Reagan. "They're not going to respond to pressure from either side". The article traced the connection back to when Kennedy's son Justin Kennedy dealt with Trump while working at Deutsche Bank during a time when the bank loaned Trump more than a billion dollars. Mike Lee, who is the one non-judge on the list.

Trump has hit the ground running, meeting Thursday with key Republican and Democratic senators at the White House in the evening to discuss the vacancy.

This comes as the GOP is pushing for a new Supreme Court Justice by this fall.

A sign that the White House is also focusing on these Democrats: Sen.

Trump could be reluctant to take Lee out of the Senate because of past experience.

Detroit Tigers fire pitching coach Chris Bosio for insensitive comment
Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire added Bosio to his staff prior this season, Gardenhire's first in charge in Detroit . General manager Al Avila told reporters the comments in question from Bosio were directed at a club employee.

"Not 20 states. There will be some states, but they will be in a very distinct minority", he said.

"He said he'd like the job, usually they don't say that", Trump.

The senator added, half-jokingly, "I'd also really enjoy the opportunity to grill him as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee". Voting for himself might be necessary since Republicans only outnumber Democrats 51-49, and two of the Republicans are pro-abortion: Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political campaign organization, has launched a seven-figure ad buy aimed at vulnerable Democrats, said chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino. Somebody has the last word and here it is the Supreme Court and Roe V. Wade is doomed.

In the run-up to selecting Gorsuch, Trump met with three contenders and White House officials vetted several more. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0".

Instead he thinks its more likely that court packing could be used as an opening bid for Democrats in order to pursue more moderate institutional reforms to the Supreme Court.

Steven Law, president of the Senate Leadership Fund, a campaign group aligned with McConnell, said the group began running ads Thursday in 10 states that Trump won in 2016 where Democratic senators are now up for re-election.
