President Donald Trump is scheduled to announce his nominee for the Supreme Court Tuesday night.
Neil Gorsuch, Thomas Hardiman and William Pryor are the three federal appeals court judges who are seen as the leading candidates.
Each was appointed to the appellate bench by President George W. Bush. Each appeared on Trump's list of 21 possible choices that he made public during the campaign, and each has met with Trump to discuss the vacancy that arose when Justice Antonin Scalia died nearly a year ago.
