Posted on 05/18/2016 2:21:53 PM PDT by detective
Today Donald J. Trump released the much-anticipated list of people he would consider as potential replacements for Justice Scalia at the United States Supreme Court. This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership.
Mr. Trump stated, Justice Scalia was a remarkable person and a brilliant Supreme Court Justice. His career was defined by his reverence for the Constitution and his legacy of protecting Americans most cherished freedoms. He was a Justice who did not believe in legislating from the bench and he is a person whom I held in the highest regard and will always greatly respect his intelligence and conviction to uphold the Constitution of our country. The following list of potential Supreme Court justices is representative of the kind of constitutional principles I value and, as President, I plan to use this list as a guide to nominate our next United States Supreme Court Justices.

Thanks for posting.
Judge Moore isn’t on the list?
Good timing as far as media exposure goes. It’s a slow news cycle for him, no big primaries soon. This will take Bernary off the headlines for a couple days.
Other threads from today about the nominees:
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
Don Willett of Texas
Now we need to see HILLARY’S list if she is elected POTUS....i mean its only fair.

Where is Ted Cruz of Canada?
Where is Ted Cruz of Canada?
Awaiting on the call, in the mean time he says he’ll run for election to another senate
term from Texas. That way he’ll have a job until the next Presidential election assuming
the democrat was elected this time. Man is plotting for down the road.
He’s destroyed himself.
Cruz has said he doesn’t want a SCOTUS seat.
I think he’s too talented to take a seat on the court this early.

Ping! The article has the basics on each but a complete analysis of their opinions and dissents over the years would be great! ;-)
Looking for Mittens to pop up and say it's a disqualifying event if she doesn't. :-)
