President Donald Trump's top contenders for the vacancy appear to be federal appeals judges Amy Coney Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge. That list, approved by several conservative groups, helped him clinch the presidency.
It also underlines that the decision by McConnell to refuse to confirm President Barack Obama's pick for the court, Judge Merrick Garland, before the 2016 election, that could have led to a liberal majority, as one of the most far-reaching gambits in recent political history.

He financed his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge.
Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall - excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings previous year, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience.
Kethledge serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The two groups were key in developing the list of candidates used by President Trump to make a decision. "On Saturday, he tweeted that a 'Big decision" was coming soon. The group says it has reserved air time nationally and in those same states for another four weeks. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on "Fox News Sunday". Dick Durbin of IL on NBC's "Meet the Press" said Sunday. The new justice has the potential to entrench conservative control of the Supreme Court for years to come. "I do think the president has to think about who is the easiest to get confirmed here and I expect we'll do that on sort of a normal timetable of a couple of months".
