All eyes are on President Trump as chose a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kennedy is retiring and Trump was looking at a list of conservative justices.

There's concern over whether Roe v. Wade could be overturned.

Other important issues could also be at stake.

Kennedy was the key swing vote, upholding the right to choose.

His retirement gives the president the chance to turn the court more right-wing.

Trump's pick was Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

"The American people are on our side in their views and beliefs,” said Senator Richard Blumenthal.

Senators Blumenthal and Murphy say the Federalist society has given Trump names for Justice Kennedy's replacement, a hugely powerful group of conservative lawyers who want to interpret the law as it is written in the constitution.

"Will he go for broke and pick the most conservative or the one we know the most or the one who is most confirmable,” said Stephen Giles, Law Professor at Quinnipiac University.

Assuming Trump picks one of 4 supposed finalists, the nominee more than likely will be a reliably conservative judge who may try to overturn a woman's right to choose.

Murphy feels Trump's pick may have strong opinions on other issues.

"These justices that have made the final cut are extreme on women's reproductive rights, their extreme on voting rights, but they are also very extreme on gun rights, and you could see eradication of all of Connecticut’s gun laws,” said Murphy.

Word is Trump has already picked his nominee, which he will announce at 9 p.m. Monday night.

The question on many minds is how much could this one nomination change the balance of the court and affect decisions for decades to come.
