Mr. Trump is holding rallies nearly every night in the weeks leading up to the election. On Monday night, he held two campaign events in Ohio, another battleground state. Mr. Trump told supporters there that he’s considering five women for the Supreme Court seat.
“I have five that we’re vetting right now,” the president told his crowd in Dayton, adding that he would nominate a “brilliant” woman to the Supreme Court.
On Monday, he met with Judge Amy Coney Barrett, considered one of the top contenders for the post, CBS News confirmed.
