Kethledge, a former Kennedy law clerk, has sat on the 6th Circuit since 2008 after being nominated by George W. Bush.
President Donald Trump's top contenders for the vacancy appear to be federal appeals judges Amy Coney Barrett, Thomas Hardiman, Brett Kavanaugh and Raymond Kethledge.
"Justice Kavanaugh has the most experience but Justice Hardiman is the one that will get through the Senate more easily and he would bring better legal mind to the United States or in court than all four", Valentino told News10NBC.
Although Trump said during the campaign he would appoint anti-abortion judges who would overturn Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, he said he would not ask candidates about whether they think the ruling should be reversed.
Kennedy's exit has afforded Trump the opportunity to replace the frequent swing vote on the court with a reliable conservative judge and influence the judiciary for decades.
Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn't locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. Monday announcement from the White House.
Barrett, 46, is a former law clerk to the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
The president has said that he narrowed the list of potential candidates from 25 to two or three.
Hearings for the most recent nominees to the Supreme Court have lasted four or five days, though there were 11 days of hearings for Robert Bork's nomination in 1987.
Barrett, who is 46, has less of a judicial record to review, having just been nominated to the appeals court by Trump a year ago. The New York Times reported Sunday that Trump found Kethledge a little boring and anxious about his record on immigration.
They include Judge Raymond Kethledge, 51, who sits on the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, who would puncture the Ivy League aura that cloaks the Supreme Court since he studied law at the University of MI and not Harvard or Yale. While that argument won't sway Republicans, their strategy could stiffen Democratic resolve to oppose the nominee. Bob Casey, D- Pa., has already expressed his disapproval of Trump's decision.
"This is a nightmare for red state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee - and all these candidates are highly qualified", Lindsey Graham, the senator from SC, told Fox News Sunday. As an appeals court judge, Kethledge authored several notable opinions, including one that upheld the death penalty against a suspect who murdered a woman on federal land and a case in OH that questioned whether private citizens can sue the state for failing to enforce pollution controls. He had previously worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr in the investigation of President Bill Clinton, and was involved in the Florida presidential vote recount in 2000.
"This is a nightmare for red-state Democrats to oppose a highly qualified nominee, and all four of these people are highly qualified", noted Graham. I'm open to voting no. "I don't think my role is a rubber stamp for the President, but it's also not an automatic, knee-jerk no either", Jones said.
The EU has been keen to focus minds in Britain. "I can only regret that the idea of Brexit has not left with Davis and Johnson". Since cabinet approval for the plan on Friday, however, he had refrained from public comment.
The group was found nine days later in a cramped chamber 2.5 miles inside the cave system by two British volunteer rescue divers . A witness near the cave told the Reuters news agency that medical workers carried four people to emergency rescue vehicles.
