Supreme Final Four: Trump to Announce Nominee Monday Night

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.
