John Roberts now serves as the chief White House correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC).

Casey's opposition extends to Fox Chapel's Thomas M. Hardiman, who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the majority leader, has tried to warn the president through gentle nudging that Hardiman and Kethledge would be the safest choices for confirmation.

Kethledge serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Barrett, confirmed to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on October 31, has faced opposition by abortion rights groups because she has called Roe v. Wade an erroneous decision.

Before boarding Air Force One en route to Washington, Trump said he was considering four people and that of those under consideration, "you can't go wrong". "And after that 36 year period, we only have a single individual on the court who has expressly said he would overturn Roe". Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski is in the spotlight for similar reasons.

President Trump spent the weekend discussing his options with other officials and is expected to announce his pick Monday night.

A person familiar with the selection process earlier indicated Trump was narrowing the field, with Barrett the least likely among the four to be chosen. The ads will simply tell viewers who the nominee is and explain why they are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.

Recent developments underline the shrewdness of Trump's campaign team, which published a list of potential court nominees with stellar conservative credentials before he faced off against Hillary Clinton.

Senator Lindsey Graham said President Donald Trump would not receive Democrat support for his Supreme Court pick, even if he nominated George Washington.

By installing Gorsuch and another, similar candidate on the court, Trump can tell conservative voters that he kept his promises and give them a reason to solidify his electoral coalition.

Republicans are eager for conservatives to gain a firm majority on the court. The ad is expected to feature an introductory bio on the president's yet-to-be-named Supreme Court nominee.
