After weeks of speculation, President Donald Trump will announce his pick Monday to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
"We're very close to making a decision ... Let's say it's the four people. And they're excellent, every one. You can't go wrong," the president told reporters Sunday.
Rounding out the top four: Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett—a charismatic Catholic—and Thomas Hardiman.
The president is said to be leaning toward Hardiman. The 53-year-old was runner-up to Neil Gorsuch the last time the president chose a nominee.
Senate Republicans say whoever the president chooses from this supreme final four will be a winner.
"If you're a conservative Republican, the four named—particularly Thomas Hardiman. I'm glad he's on the list—are all winners," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told "Fox News Sunday."
But it's not going down without a fight. Senate Democrats point to two things: the first being the so-called Mitch "McConnell rule" of not voting on nominees during an election year.
Democrats are also opposed to any candidate that may be committed to overturning Roe v. Wade.
