One reason Donald Trump supporters appreciate him so much is that he breaks the moldy old political mold.
Well, he’s taken a hammer to it again with the unusual move of releasing his list of 11 possible Supreme Court nominees to replace the late Antonin Scalia. The list includes conservative judges serving on both federal and state courts and numerous choices who are well respected by conservative legal analysts. One individual, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin, who sits on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, might offer a welcome female conservative voice currently lacking on the U.S. Supreme Court. The same could be said of another female judge on the list, Allison Eid of Colorado, who clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Conservatives who question Trump’s desire to steer the country in a more conservative direction should be reassured by this list. No doubt that’s “yuuuuuge” motivation for releasing it now.
From Fox News:
Republican candidate Donald Trump released the name of 11 judges he would vet to consider for nomination to the vacant Supreme Court seat should he be elected president in November, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
The unusual move is aimed at suppressing conservative fears that he would not name someone in line with their philosophies. The AP reported the list as:
Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado, Raymond Gruender of Missouri, Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin and Don Willett of Texas.
