Trump Releases SCOTUS Nominee Picks


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.
