GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump has unveiled a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justices if he wins the presidency.  Trump’s picks are along the conservative lines as the late Justice Antonin Scalia.  Trump has named Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado, Raymond Gruender of Missouri,
 

Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin and Don Willett of Texas.  Trump’s goal by releasing this list of potential Scalia replacements, is to curb fears brought by some Republicans who claim Trump is not conservative.  Trump had vowed to name judges repeatedly that “everybody respects, likes and admires,” as well as “great conservative judges, great intellects, the people that you (Americans) want.”  Since Scalia’s death in February, Trump has said he would appoint judges that reflected Scalia’s conservative viewpoint.
