The president is choosing from a list of 25 candidates vetted by conservative groups. The best choice for the opening is Judge Raymond Kethledge of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

"These are very talented people, brilliant people", Trump said Tuesday during an appearance in West Virginia.

"I learned as a young lawyer that being a judicial conservative means you do not ignore, redefine or add to the text of the Constitution or the words of a congressional statute to achieve a policy outcome".

The candidate and their spouse's appearance is also important to Trump, Politico reported, citing one person who said it is paramount to Trump that his pick "looks all-American". There were the four interviews Monday, as well as a conversation with Republican Sen. He is now serving as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in MI.

Another candidate considered a top contender is Joan Larsen, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) has reportedly been interviewed by President Trump as a prospective replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Both Kavanaugh and Kethledge have lengthy conservative judicial records.

Trump is expected to announce his pick from the list, which now comprises over 25 judges from across the country, on July 9.

A new report from a conservative news outlet says President Donald Trump is no longer seriously considering Sen.

Kethledge, 51, was appointed to his current post by Republican former President George W. Bush and was confirmed by the Senate in 2008. Ted Cruz of Texas, are supporting fellow Sen.

Judge Barrett also clerked for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and taught at the University of Notre Dame School of Law. Barrett was born Amy Vivian Coney in New Orleans in 1972. "She is not perceived as a Washington insider and that can be very powerful", said Ms.

With the President set to announce his Supreme Court pick Monday evening, another name has entered the game.
