President Trump's pick to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court next week, report the AP and the Wall Street Journal. "We have outstanding candidates and we'll pick a truly great Supreme Court nominee," Trump says. He's expected to discuss the nomination Tuesday with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and both Republicans and Democrats of the Senate Judiciary Committee, McConnell says.

The Los Angeles Times reports Neil Gorsuch is an emerging favorite, while CNN names William Pryor and Diane Sykes as other top contenders. (Read more US Supreme Court stories.)
