U.S. Court of Appeals Judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman appear to be the four finalists, according to the Washington Post and New York Times.

Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Roy Blunt of Missouri said Sunday that they believe any of the top four contenders could get confirmed by the GOP-majority Senate.
