Trump adds 5 names to SCOTUS nominee list for future open seat

The White House on Friday announced the addition of five new names to President Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees.

After the successful nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the nation’s highest court, in addition to other nominations of federal judges during his first year as president, the statement released by the White House said Trump is “refreshing” his list “with input from respected conservative leaders.”

“President Trump will choose a nominee for a future Supreme Court vacancy, should one arise, from this updated list of 25 individuals,” the statement read.

Two of the latest candidates, Judge Amy Coney Barrett and Judge Kevin C. Newsom, were both nominated to their current positions by Trump in May, according to the White House.

Barret serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and Newsom serves on U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, the statement said. The White House announced both nominations in May.

Also on the list are Justice Britt C. Grant of the Supreme Court of Georgia, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and Justice Patrick Wyrick of the Supreme Court of Oklahoma.

Trump made a great pick with Neil Gorsuch so we look forward to learning more about his other choices!
