"I will oppose the nomination the President will make tonight because it represents a corrupt bargain with the far Right, big corporations, and Washington special interests", Casey said in a statement.

If that timeline holds, Vice President Mike Pence would be among the first to know who Trump will nominate.

When President Trump's political obituary is written, you can bet the decision he makes Monday about a Supreme Court justice will be pretty high up. But the situation appeared to remain fluid.

Byrne, R-Fairhope, is considered one of Jones's potential 2020 opponents in what could be a fierce battle for a Senate seat that, before last December's special election, had always been in Republican hands. Kennedy, a member of the Judiciary Committee, which will get the first chance to question the nominee, predicted a "rough, tough, down in the dirt, ear-pulling, nose-biting fight".

The battle for Senate confirmation of Trump's Supreme Court pick is likely to be one of the most intense.

Track record: Barrett's recent ascension to the appeals court means she does not have the long, conservative record that lawmakers on the right find reassuring. At the top of that list is abortion. Trump pledged in 2016 that he would be "putting pro-life justices on the court". Kennedy provided a decisive vote in 2015 on an important fair housing case.

Meanwhile, the conservative Judicial Crisis Network said it will launch a $1.4 million ad buy in four states - Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia - introducing the nominee in a favorable light. He works for the Washington-based lobbying firm Covington & Burling.

But Leo said Monday morning, about 12 hours before Trump is slated to reveal his pick in a prime-time East Room ceremony at the White House, that "all are confirmable in the Senate". Trump will nominate a justice who could set the course of the country for years and decades to come - for good or ill, depending upon your viewpoint - but a late development this weekend reinforces that the decision isn't destined to be a home run.

The president has spent the days leading up to the decision mulling the pros and cons of the various options with aides and allies. Trump's sister Judge Maryanne Trump Barry also sits on the 3rd Circuit and reportedly backed Hardiman for the seat Gorsuch eventually filled. He was also said to be strongly interested in Kavanaugh.

Trump is scheduled to announce a nominee at 9 p.m. Monday. In three of the states targeted, incumbent Democratic senators are running for reelection this year: Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Barrett has already crossed swords with Democrats in her Senate confirmation hearing for her current job, when California Sen.
