Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing opened up the opportunity for Donald Trump to nominate his third Supreme Court Justice.
The selection will come Saturday.
And Donald Trump is considering one surprising name to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
As Great American Daily reports:
In 2016, Donald Trump’s most successful tactic in turning out evangelical Christians was announcing a list of judges that he would only choose Supreme Court nominees from.
Voters that listed the court as their number one issue broke 56 to 41 for Trump over Hillary Clinton and provided the margin of victory in the key battleground states.
Now, the President is trying to recreate that winning formula by releasing a new list of judges ahead of the 2020 election.
At the White House, the President announced the following potential Supreme Court nominees:
Bridget Bade, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
Daniel Cameron, 51st Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Kentucky
Tom Cotton, U.S. Senator from Arkansas
Paul Clement, partner with Kirkland & Ellis LLP
Ted Cruz, U.S. Senator from Texas
Stuart Kyle Duncan, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
Steven Engel, Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel of the U.S. Department of Justice
Noel Francisco, former Solicitor General of the United States
Josh Hawley, U.S. Senator from Missouri
James Ho, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
Gregory Katsas, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
Barbara Lagoa, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
Christopher Landau, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to the United Mexican States
Carlos Muñiz, Justice on the Supreme Court of Florida
Martha Pacold, Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois
Peter Phipps, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
Sarah Pitlyk, Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
Allison Jones Rushing, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit
Kate Todd, Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Counsel to the President
Lawrence VanDyke, Judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
One name stuck out: Texas Senator Ted Cruz as a potential replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg excited many conservatives.
Ginsburg’s been in and out of the hospital over the last two years with a variety of ailments from broken ribs to treatment for pancreatic and lung cancer.
President Trump nominating Ted Cruz to the Supreme Court would eliminate any doubts about the latest conservative justice going “squishy” or turning into another John Roberts’ style liberal.
