Is he leaning in favor of Pennsylvania jurist Thomas Hardiman? I don’t know, Hardiman seems good, but Democrats in his state “respect” him, which makes me wonder.
From the Washington Examiner:
Third Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Thomas Hardiman appears to have a few advantages over other candidates, in the race to become President Trump’s nominee — including a connection to Trump and Trump’s private assessment that Hardiman might be the toughest judge he can get through the Senate.
“‘He’s probably the most conservative judge that can get confirmed,'” a well-placed source familiar with the deliberations quoted Trump as saying in a private meeting.
