President Donald Trump is expected to select a Supreme Court nominee from a four-person list when he makes his announcement at 9 p.m.
"The president was very impressed with Barrett but said on a number of occasions it might be best to save her for a future vacancy", the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Trump a year ago appointed Neil Gorsuch, who has already become one of the most conservative justices, after Senate Republicans in 2016 refused to consider Democratic former President Barack Obama's nominee Merrick Garland to fill a vacancy left by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. Some of those victories were made possible by the swing vote of Anthony Kennedy, whose retirement handed Trump a golden ideological opening. The liberals' effort probably will focus on moderate GOP senators, such as Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, who might be wary of adding a hard-line conservative and risking decades-old precedents such as Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in 1973.
The new justice can be expected to cast crucial votes on other matters of national importance including gay rights, gun control, the death penalty and voting rights.

Top contenders for the role have included federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.
Hardiman, who turned 53 on Sunday, is a judge on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals and was the runner-up to Trump's first nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Hardiman, who drove a cab as he worked his way through college, was in the running for the seat that eventually went to Gorsuch. "But I hope Senator Jones will do the right thing and support President Trump's pick because I think President Trump's (nominee) will be the pick of the vast majority of the people in the state of Alabama". "Lots of presidents before him have said these kinds of things - on both sides of the aisle".
Support for nomination: Barrett also served as a law clerk to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who is beloved by conservatives.
