In March, Heritage legal scholar John Malcolm identified eight highly qualified candidates for the United States Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia. These candidates all demonstrate a principled understanding of the Constitution and the role of the judiciary.
On Wednesday, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump identified his list of candidates for the high court–and five of them were drawn from Heritage’s list.
The five judges on both lists were federal Judges William Pryor, Diane Sykes, Steven Colloton, Raymond Gruender, and Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett.
Heritage has also recently briefed the Trump campaign on Heritage’s conservative solutions to poverty and national security. We will share our conservative policy solutions–including our comprehensive Solutions 2016 guide–with any candidate who asks.
