Kavanaugh, 53, is a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit and Yale Law School graduate who previously served in both Bush administrations.
"Justice Kennedy's resignation letter barely arrived in the President's hands before several Democratic colleagues began declaring their blanket opposition to anyone at all - anyone - that the President might name", McConnell said Monday. Besides McGahn, he has the support of some Republicans who admire his record as a lawyer working with independent counsel Ken Starr in the investigation of President Bill Clinton and later in the George W. Bush White House as well as his conservative record as a judge.
Hardiman, who was runner-up to Neil Gorsuch as the president's Supreme Court pick a year ago, made a comeback on Trump's shortlist this weekend in part because of the president's sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, who serves with Hardiman on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
His pick will have a tough nomination battle ahead of them, with Republicans holding onto a single seat majority in the Senate, with John McCain ill and possibly unable to participate in the confirmation process.

The Judicial Crisis Network is planning a $1.4 million ad buy in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia - states with moderate Democratic senators who could be pressured to vote for Trump's nominee.

Senator Dianne Feinstein said Trump's choice "could have a bigger effect on Americans' daily lives than any justice in our lifetime".
Last year, I was proud to appoint Justice Kennedy's former law clerk, Neil Gorsuch, to the Supreme Court. The opinion, written for a three-judge panel, was eventually overturned by the full court.
But Trump appointed Barrett to the Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit just nine months ago, and he may well leave her to gain more experience.
Trump is supposedly favoring Kavanaugh because of those views, per CNN. Republicans have a razor-thin Senate majority. Ten Democrats from states that Trump won are up for re-election this fall and will be under tremendous pressure to back the president's nominee.
On the past quarter century's most consequential and controversial issues, from racial preferences to religious freedom to reproductive rights, Kennedy often bridged the gap between the court's liberals and conservatives. And, you know, the concern would be that something could pop up going through all those papers that could make him a tougher pick.
