A former Republican senator will help President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee through the Senate confirmation process, the White House announced Monday. “Former Sen. Jon Kyl has agreed to serve as the sherpa for the president’s nominee to the Supreme Court,” said White House spokesman Raj Shah. During his time in the Senate, Kyl served on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will oversee the confirmation hearings for Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. Kyl was on the panel during the confirmations of four of the last five Supreme Court justices.
