Transcript for President Trump to Announce Supreme Court Nominee
I want to bring in Jon Karl our chief white house correspondent and, Jesse palmer, it appears the president may name a supreme court nominee today. Reporter: I'm told it could come as soon as this afternoon if not tomorrow. I am told it is down to two names on the very short list, the first and the one I would call the clear front-runner is judge Neal Gorsuch of the 10th circuit court of appeal, he is something 49 years old was confirmed unanimously when bush appointed him to that role back in 2006 and has been known or called Scalia 2.0. Not only is he conservative like former justice Scalia but has that kind of flair with his writing style. The other one on the list I am told is Dr. Thomas Hardiman of the 3rd circuit court of appeal, 51 years old, somebody who serves with president trump's sister, judge Marian Barry -- trump Barry. By the way I'm told the president's sister likes Hardiman. That could be important. Jon Karl, thanks very much.
