The White House hopes his close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path for Trump's eventual selection to win confirmation.

Before joining the federal court, Hardiman practiced law in Pittsburgh.
None of the judges named is older than 53, meaning any of them could sit on the court for several decades, allowing Trump to make a lasting imprint on the nation's laws.
