U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday night nominated conservative federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy, who will retire in the end of the month.

Trump made the announcement in a prime-time address from the White House, urging the Senate to confirm his nominee.

Kavanaugh was the frontrunner among four finalists who also included judges Thomas Hardiman, Amy Coney Barrett and Raymond Kethledge. They were all part of a 25-name list vetted by conservative groups.

The announcement ended days of suspense following Kennedy's announcement late June that he would retire on July 31.
