The former Notre Dame law professor and clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative icon, went from relatively anonymity to a favourite of the evangelical right when Mr Trump nominated her to the Seventh Circuit US Court of Appeals.

"I kind of like not having to read a lot of briefs and get reversed by my former colleagues", Stevens said.

En route to an event in West Virginia, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters aboard Air Force One that Trump spoke with three potential nominees today. There's one name on the list who is garnering particular attention, however - someone who is reportedly one of four finalists who have already met with Mr Trump in the White House.

Trump is expected to begin his search in earnest this week at the White House and said the process could include interviews at his golf club before he reaches a final decision following the Fourth of July holiday.

President Trump has said that he will pick Kennedy's replacement from the list of 25 prospects that he disclosed as a candidate in 2016.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has emerged as a conservative favorite in the nomination process, was also featured in Coulter's analysis. Mike Lee on Monday.

Justin Clark, in his position as director of the Office of Public Liaison, will oversee outreach with key constituencies, coalitions, grass-roots organizations and allies, the White House said.

The White House is focusing on five to seven potential candidates to fill the vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote on the court.

As Trump readies his nominee, which he says he'll announce on July 9, what is the status of abortion in the United States now?

Sykes serves as a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is the second NU aluma on Trump's list. Though the case was not directly about abortion, groups favoring abortion rights worry that Hardiman's ruling signals his sympathies on the issue.

The challenge for opponents, Fallon said, is motivating grassroots communities interested in those issues to engage over the Supreme Court vacancy - and to do it in a hurry.
