Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) said Thursday the upcoming fight over President Donald Trump'sSupreme Court nominee was about whether the country would "criminalize women". "And I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific".
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a GOP gathering in Kentucky that the goal is to wrap up the confirmation in time for the nominee to join the court at the start of its next term in October.

Supreme Court vacancies have become a key voting issue in the USA presidential election. Trump will announce his pick to replace Kennedy on July 9. Nominated by Republican President Ronald Reagan and confirmed in 1988, Kennedy is widely thought to be a moderate and pivotal swing vote on the court.
Kennedy's retirement will give Trump the opportunity to appoint his second justice and reshape the nation's highest court for generations.
Many liberals fear that with Kennedy gone, a Trump replacement will ensure that eventually Roe v. Wade will be overturned. Neither senator is known for telegraphing how they will cast their votes until right before the vote is called, so the spotlight will likely be on them in the months ahead. And at least three Democrats facing reelection in states that Trump won may be willing to break with their party, too.

For Republicans' part, they need to balance actively campaigning against the trio in 2018, while courting their votes for the Supreme Court nominee. "And that'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court". Red-state Democrats are generally loathe to make their campaigns about social issues, and Heitkamp has preferred to work with the Trump administration on economic and energy grounds.
Like Collins and Murkowski, these Democrats are unlikely to reveal how they will vote until the nomination comes to the Senate floor. "This is a line that's been drawn about whether we are going to criminalize women, whether we are going to be arresting women for making decisions about their bodies".

Of course, Trump had something to Tweet about it and chose to make his opinion public. the president had a lot to say about it. Trump offered no clarity later in the day when he was asked about tariffs during a White House photo-op with Congress members.
After that, he added more names, including that of former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Bob Young, who considered a run for U.S. Ellison said that he's come across many people in Minnesota whose loved ones can't join them because of the travel restrictions.
