Posted on 09/19/2020 9:14:32 AM PDT by AndyJackson
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump floated two Florida justices as potential additions to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In the wake of Fridays death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, those names have a renewed resonance, with Trump ready to move forward, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowing that Trumps nominee will get a vote despite the immiment election.
Both Barbara Lagoa and Carlos Muñiz, respectively a former and a current member of the Florida Supreme Court appointed by Gov. Ron DeSantis, were among a list of 20 names introduced by the President to media at the White House earlier this month.

You mean a real "Wise Latina"?
The dems will attack anyone Trump selects no matter sex or color.
It is up to McConnell to make sure it goes nowhere but the press.
My thinking tracks with yours precisely. I was looking at the revised list last night and focused on these two for the same reasons
Is there a non-binary or transgender strict constitutionalist of color that Trump can nominate? That might knock the Left off-balance.
Yes, but Democrats will have to be very careful attacking a Spanish person, with the imminent election.
Barbara Lagoa would be awesome.
Female. Hispanic. Floridian.
The Democrats will demonize her. They can’t help themselves. Ans they will lose more Hispanic votes.
In 2000, she was one of a dozen mostly pro bono lawyers who represented the Miami family of Elián González.
I like her!
I hate identity politics, that’s the Dems shitty game
But selecting lagoa just too much sense... a woman, latina and would put FL in the bag
highly recommended by desantis and bondi , we can get ACB during 2nd term
If that’s what it takes to get Trump at least two more picks his next term, then he has to do it.
“Barbara Lagoa would be awesome. Female. Hispanic. Floridian. The Democrats will demonize her. They cant help themselves. Ans they will lose more Hispanic votes.”
Sounds like a Win Win Win Win to me.
Position already filled.
Plus it pulls harris off the campagin trail for weeks.....
Ya kidding, of course they will..remember in the minds of commies, you are NOT black, Mexican, a woman, etc..unless you are a Democrat
I remember when the Dems were fighting hard to kick Elian out of the country..but but I thought Dems were the party of immigrants..I guess only those immigrants who will grow up and vote Democrat
There has to be a conservative black female somewhere in this country. This is a meatball pitch waiting for us to hit a grand slam. Why would we let the Dems off the hook. Make them vote down a black female to the supreme court and see where that gets them.
Yep, that will be another cool thing about the pick.
This pick is about the election, make no mistake, it must be a pick that gives the GOP the best chance in November, not just Trump, but the House and Senate.
