Justice Gorsuch Emerges As Potential Supreme Court Nominee

Recent news reports claim that President Trump will announce his Supreme Court nominee next week.  Although candidate Trump previously released a list of potential Supreme Court nominees, recent news reports claim that Justice Neil Gorsuch of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals is under strong consideration and may end up being selected.

Justice Gorsuch is a former clerk for Justice Anthony M. Kennedy and served in President George W. Bush’s Justice Department before he was confirmed to the 10th Circuit in 2006.  Interestingly, unlike several of President Bush’s other judicial nominees, he was easily confirmed by the Senate.  In any event, click here for a brief summary of Justice Gorsuch’s background and experience.
