Supreme Court Nominees List Narrowed to Seven

At least one Republican, Susan Collins, has said that she would not vote for a nominee who supports the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a ruling that struck down laws restricting abortions.

Meanwhile, conservatives appear to be rallying around her. Phillip Jauregui, president of the Judicial Action Group, writes that he has reviewed all 25 people on Mr Trump's Supreme Court candidate list, and Ms Barrett was the name all "conservative constitutionalists" should support. The 1973 ruling legalized abortion across America.

They were the only Democrats to do so. Tim Kaine said the future of Roe v. Wade is "very much in jeopardy" during a campaign event on Monday morning in Town Center.

Kennedy has been a swing vote on the bench for more than three decades.

Schumer said that while Democrats don't control the Senate - Republicans have a 51-49 edge - most senators back abortion rights. "Well, maybe someday it will be to the states".
