"Wade-reversal" target="_blank">The Associated Press in an interview that despite Trump's public cautioning that he won't ask potential nominees to the Supreme Court about their stance on abortion, evangelicals remain highly confident in Trump's eventual pick to fill the recent vacancy.

CBS News has learned that the two leading contenders are D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, both women.

Focusing on the Supreme Court served as a useful cover for the personal shortcomings of the thrice-married casino magnate, especially after the "Access Hollywood" tape came out just weeks before the election.

The nine-point difference could suggest an enthusiasm gap between the parties, as liberal groups sound the alarm that a newly configured court could outlaw abortion rights if a conservative nominee replaces Kennedy's swing vote.

No defense attorney was listed in online court records, but one note suggests he could be represented by a public defender. Those killed included Rob Hiaasen, 59, the paper's assistant managing editor and brother of novelist Carl Hiaasen .

Trump said he not will push the candidates to say whether they would overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which established a woman's right to abortion.

President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., want to move swiftly to confirm the justice to succeed retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy before the court reconvenes on October 1.

Each of the three has a complex, frenemy-style relationship with the president, and each is trying to find the right political balance of working with a president most of their constituents strongly support, and opposing him where it matters most to their own voters. "Heidi will vote "no" for any pick we make for the Supreme Court", Trump said.

In Alabama, Tom Parker, a Republican associate justice on the state Supreme Court who is campaigning to become the state's chief justice, explicitly raised the potential of sending cases to Washington that would lead to the overturning of key rulings, including Roe v. Wade.

"I like them all", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One. He said we are not final because we are infallible, we are infallible what we are final.

"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 towards Trump.
