President Donald Trump released a new list of prospective Supreme Court nominees that he will consider selecting from if he is re-elected to a second term, and called on Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden do the same.
“President Trump has a stellar record of appointing more than 200 solid, conservative federal judges, including two strong Supreme Court justices, and will likely get to 300 judges by the end of his first term,” said Bill Stepien, Trump 2020 campaign manager. “Voters deserve transparency and a clear view of what direction candidates for president would take our federal courts.

Trump announced that the following 20 additional names had been added to his list of potential 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
