The possibility of filling Supreme Court vacancies is one of the most important reasons voters chose Donald Trump in 2016. In an effort to woo more voters for 2020, President Trump just released a list of 20 names who would be possible choices for Supreme Court Justices.
In the event of a possible SCOTUS vacancy which may be close given the health issues of elder Ginsberg, voters now have a framework for knowing where Trump would lean in making his selection.
According to Fox News, the list includes the following:
– Daniel Cameron, Kentucky attorney general who recently spoke at the Republican Convention
– Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas
– Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas
– Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri
– Bridget Bade, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals
