"I have long heard that the most important decision a U.S. President can make is the selection of a Supreme Court Justice - Will be announced tonight at 9:00 P.M. (0100 GMT Tuesday)", Trump tweeted early Monday, after a weekend spent weighing his decision at his New Jersey golf club.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, said some Democrats could defect from the party. Heitkamp opposes public funding of abortion but has argued that reproductive decisions should be made by women, their families and their doctors.
"If you're a conservative Republican, the four people named-particularly Thomas Hardiman, I'm glad he's on the list-are all winners, and every Republican should embrace these picks".
Republicans hold a narrow majority in the Senate, 51 to 49. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) are potential swing votes in the coming Senate confirmation battle.

"Maybe a handful of Democrats will vote for a Trump pick because they have to politically". Previously, Collins voted for Gorsuch because of his belief in the significance of precedent.
The president also tweeted on Saturday: "Big decision will soon be made on our next Justice of the Supreme Court!" Many, including Leo, believe that it was a major contributing factor to his victory in 2016.
Kavanaugh served under President George W. Bush which is partly why some have labeled him as more of an establishment choice. Michigan's Kethledge is on the 6th Circuit, while Indiana's Barrett is on the 7th Circuit.
It wasn't just Supreme Court nominees who needed 60 votes - federal judges and cabinet secretaries needed them as well. Barrett, in her mid-40s, is a judge for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals; she was nominated by Trump. But the situation appeared to remain fluid.
