Murkowski isn't rated as favorably among abortion rights groups, she has a 58-percent vote rating in 2018 from Planned Parenthood, but arguably there is no one in the Senate more independent than the Alaska Republican, and prouder of her reputation among women in her state.

Trump on Friday told reporters he'd narrowed his list down to five. How about some more R29 goodness, right here?

With Kennedy's departure, Republicans have a chance to tip the balance of the court. "Heidi will vote "no" for any pick we make for the Supreme Court", Trump said. Donnelly has traveled with Trump on Air Force One, and appeared alongside the president at a recent bill signing ceremony at the White House.
