President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will announce next week his nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.

The number of justices has remained at eight since the February 2016 passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Fox News correspondent Shannon Bream was a guest on "America's News HQ" to discuss several possibilities to fill the void.

Bream mentioned 49-year-old Judge Neil Gorsuch as a favorite among conservatives.

He currently serves on the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and is said to have a similar philosophy to that of Scalia.

Bream also mentioned Judge Bill Pryor from the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Trump had specifically named Pryor as a possibility during a February 2016 presidential debate.

Pryor is also popular among conservatives given his strong stance against the decision of Roe v. Wade.

Not mentioned the in the segment was Judge Thomas Hardiman of the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals whose name has also been floated as a possibility to fill the vacancy.

Trump's nominee would be subject to a Senate filibuster, meaning 60 votes are necessary to end debate on the nomination. In order to reach 60 votes, some Senate Democrats would have to be on board with the pick.
