President Donald Trump will announce his pick to replace Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Monday at the White House.
We will have live video coverage here once the event begins.
Trump is expected to decide among four finalists, all federal appellate judges, taken from an original list of 25 candidates previously compiled by the White House:
- Amy Coney Barrett of the Seventh Circuit
- Thomas Hardiman of the Third Circuit
- Brett Kavanaugh of the District of Columbia Circuit
- Raymond Kethledge of the Sixth Circuit
I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice – Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M.
