President Trump’s list of possible Supreme Court nominees

WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death Friday, just six weeks before Election Day, is expected to unleash a pitched battle over whether President Donald Trump should nominate — and the Republican-led Senate should confirm — her successor, or whether the seat should remain vacant until the outcome of Trump’s race against Democrat Joe Biden is known.

Trump had previously named more than 40 people he promised to choose from to fill a potential vacancy on the Supreme Court. The names of his first two nominees, Justice Neil Gorsuch and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, appeared on the lists before their nominations. The most recent additions to Trump’s list came earlier this month.
