Other women on the list include Joan Larsen, who serves on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati and previously served as a Michigan Supreme Court Justice, and Allison Eid, who serves on the federal appeals court based in Denver and previously served as a Colorado Supreme Court justice.
Democrats had focused on Flake as their best hope to stall Trump's Supreme Court pick.
The president told reporters aboard Air Force One that he would announce his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9. "The deeply-divided decisions from the Supreme Court this week are a clear warning that our most cherished values are in jeopardy, and now hang in the balance".
Last year, Trump's first nominee to the court, Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed 54-45, with only these three Democrats voting in favor.
That was an overstatement. Despite being nominated by a Republican president, Justice Kennedy often sided with the liberal wing of the court in cases dealing with abortion. Conservatives have called for his impeachment.
Gareth Southgate admits knives will be out if England lose to Colombia
England went out in 1996 on penalties, as they did at the World Cups in 1990, 1998 and 2006, and European Championships in 2004 and 2012.

Trump met on Thursday with senators from both parties at the White House to discuss the court vacancy created by the retirement of Kennedy, which was announced on Wednesday.
Sanders also said in a tweet that the president's team also talked with "more than a dozen other Senators today as part of ongoing outreach to get views and advice from both sides of the aisle".

When asked is issues affecting women are the "most important" for 2018 candidates to discuss, almost half (48 percent) said they are "very important but not the most important issue".
Justin Kennedy, the former global head of Deutsche Bank's real estate capital markets division, was reportedly one of Trump's closest business associates and most important lenders.
Kawhi Leonard reportedly pitched LeBron James on the prospect of teaming up
Of course this news has the internet ablaze, so Joe Vardon followed up his tweet with a story on LeBron's free agency options. There's also the possibility that Kawhi Leonard , who wants out of San Antonio , gets traded to Philadelphia.
Ms. Trump tweeted about the visit and posted a photo.
There's every indication that the nomination of Kennedy's successor will proceed with precision uncharacteristic of Trump's White House.

That would put a new justice in place before the congressional midterm elections in November, when all seats in the House of Representatives and a third of those in the Senate will be contested. The president said he didn't plan to probe any potential replacements about Roe v. Wade.
