"So we want Roe to be overturned. and we expect that".

Democrats had focused on Flake as their best hope to stall Trump's Supreme Court pick.

Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority in the chamber and Trump can ill-afford any defections. He said Kennedy understood his role as a swing vote: "The justice knew that on many controversial issues he could tip the court and I think he appreciated that, and sought to create balance in the Constitution and in the constitutional law that the court issued". Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will conduct hearings on the nominee.

Also of interest are Amul Thapar, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati, lives in Kentucky and is close to McConnell; Brett Kavanaugh, a former clerk for Kennedy who serves on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C.; and Amy Coney Barrett, who serves on the federal appeals court in Chicago. It won't work. The president will quickly nominate a Kennedy replacement.

Lee is on Trump's initial list of possible Supreme Court picks. "We've been preparing for this fight for a very long time".

"McConnell will make it a priority", he told reporters.

Net Neutrality Repeal Goes Into Effect
The rules also restricted ISPs from charging extra for certain traffic, creating so-called fast lanes for companies and consumers. Pai argued that net neutrality created a disincentive for internet services to invest in their networks.

"The fact that there's a modest enthusiasm disadvantage isn't all that meaningful because there's already an enthusiasm gap for Republicans", he said, noting Democratic anger toward Trump.

"That's not a question I'll be asking", he said.

Mr Trump has promised to draw the next justice from a list of 25 prospective candidates that was first established during the 2016 presidential campaign and updated last autumn. When he's inevitably replaced by a conservative more in line with Trump's worldview, there will likely be a concerted effort to chip away at the country's current abortion statutes.

"We're now four months away from an election to determine the party that will control the Senate", she said in the statement.

Kennedy's departure sets up an intense battle in the Senate, where Democrats remain angry Mitch McConnell refused to consider Obama nominee Merrick Garland in 2016.

"On the left, that's what they're concerned about", Perino said.

When asked about Democrats wanting to wait until after the election, Sen. All three are up for reelection this year.
