NEW YORK — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has released his complete list of potential nominees for the United States Supreme Court should he win the presidency, which includes an appeals judge who has referred to abortion as a woman’s “right,” and a judge who once prosecuted Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore while serving as attorney general.
“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,” his campaign said in a press release Wednesday afternoon. “This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership.”
The list contained 11 potential nominees, including Steven Colloton, Allison Eid, Thomas Lee, William Pryor, Diane Sykes, and Don Willett.
As previously reported, Skyes wrote the majority opinion in a 2013 case that barred the state of Indiana from defunding Planned Parenthood. She was nominated to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by then-President George W. Bush.
