Update: Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court.

U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to announce his pick for the Supreme Court Monday night.

He is selecting someone to fill the seat vacated by Justice Kennedy, a conservative judge who sometimes sided with the court’s liberal wing.

Trump’s pick must be confirmed by the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans.

Only 50 votes are needed to confirm a Supreme Court nominee.

That means if all but one Republicans vote along party lines they won’t need any Democratic support.
