After more than a week of pitched speculation, Trump will go on prime-time television to reveal his choice to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, selecting a conservative designed to rally Republican voters in a midterm election year.Nearly 18 months after Trump set in motion Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination, the reality star-turned-president is more seasoned, more embittered and increasingly comfortable exerting his will over the machinery of government and his own staff. Trump is largely following the same playbook this time as when he successfully rolled out Gorsuch's nomination in January 2017 . The president was gleeful when Gorsuch's name didn't leak out early.Drawn from a public list of 25 candidates approved by conservative groups, the president's top contenders include federal appeals court judges Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge, with judges Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman still considered in the mix.President Barack Obama announced the selection of Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor from the White House during the day.More than 33 million viewers watched Trump announce Gorsuch last year.
