Political cartoons: Justice Kennedy retires, Capital Gazette shooting

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2015

He was later appointed to the federal Appeals Court by President George W. Bush.

Trump is moving quickly to fill the vacancy that will be created when Justice Anthony M. Kennedy retires from the court July 31.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Friday he hoped the confirmation process would be done "in time for the new justice to begin the fall term of the Supreme Court. the first Monday in October".

According to the BBC, Trump plans on interviewing "one or two" of the potential nominees at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club over the weekend.

Another change in the cameras is that the front camera will have variable aperture like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus . The noticeable difference is at the back where the fingerprint sensor is now moved below the camera module.

"What people don't understand is that if you overturn Roe v. Wade, all that does is give the states the right to decide whether abortion is legal or illegal", Falwell said.

He added, "I think it's inappropriate to discuss". Other evangelical supporters, including Jerry Falwell Jr., James Dobson and Tony Perkins, stressed that Trump would appoint judges sympathetic to conservative Christians' views on abortion, gay marriage and religious liberty.

Lee and his brother, Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee, are both on the list to replace Kennedy - setting up a sibling showdown over who could get the nod.

The complication for a Lee nomination is that if he joined the court, a Republican Senate seat would be vacated at a time when Republicans hold only a narrow 51-49 Senate majority. The more significant shift on the high court, he said, would likely be the help given to conservatives in their fight for what they call religious freedom.

Mexico, Sweden both unchanged for World Cup Group F match
Sweden have qualified into the round of 16 after a resounding victory over Mexico in their final Group F match in Sochi. Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Croatia got the better of Iceland by 2-1 in their last match in Group D.

"Mike Lee, he's an outstanding talent", Trump said. "I actually saw him on television last night, where he said he would love the job". "Usually they don't say that". Trump welcomed Republicans Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp as part of the effort. It guarantees an even stronger and more enthusiastic link between white evangelicals and Trump, shoring up a formidable partnership for the 2018 midterms and the 2020 presidential race.

In the run-up to selecting Gorsuch, Trump met with three contenders and White House officials vetted several more.

All of Trump's potential choices have been vetted by the conservative Federalist Society, he promised during the campaign, and all are relatively young.

"We'd be very happy if he'd pick any name on that list", said Severino. Those laws are facing legal challenges, some of which seem likely to end up before the Supreme Court. "What we're seeing here is Gorsuch 2.0".

Trump rallies for GOP Senate candidate Kevin Cramer in North Dakota
He said most of his neighbors voted for Trump but are "not getting what they thought" from the president. It took a while, but the White House has finally focused on a winnable Senate election in North Dakota.

"It is exciting though, right?" said Trump. "The most important issue of this election is the Supreme Court", Franklin Graham repeatedly reminded audiences.
