Trump’s 3 Most Likely Supreme Court Nominees

While Trump’s list of Supreme Court Nominees contains over 40 names, we have found, through extensive reporting and research, these 3 names as the most likely to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
President Trump released a list of nearly 48 names on September 9th, 2020. The passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg means we need to trim this list of 48 down to 1.
Who will be the next Supreme Court Justice? We have read the resumes of each potential nominee, scoured the internet for information, and interviewed anyone with knowledge on the subject.
Here are our 3 most likely Supreme Court nominees
3) Bridget Bade – Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
Trump nominated Bridget Bade to the Ninth Circuit in 2018. Prior to her confirmation, Bade served as a magistrate judge in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. Her record as a magistrate judge consisted largely of issuing orders, reports, and recommendations. The vast majority of the reports and recommendations deal with procedural issues stemming from cases before district court judges.
2) Barbara Lagoa – Supreme Court of Florida
A Florida native, Lagoa was the first Hispanic woman to serve on the Florida Supreme Court. At 52, Lagoa would be the youngest justice on the Supreme Court, just a few months behind one of Trump’s other nominees, Neil Gorsuch. A lifetime appointment to the court would allow her to serve for decades to come.
After graduating from Columbia Law School, Lagoa worked as a pro bono lawyer for Elian Gonzalez’s family and later as a federal prosecutor. Lagoa then spent more than a decade as a judge on a Florida appeals court before being picked by Gov. Ron DeSantis to serve on the state’s supreme court.
1) Amy Coney Barrett – Indiana, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit (Barrett was a finalist for Trump’s second high court nomination, which ultimately went to Kavanaugh.)
Our overall pick to replace RGB is Amy Coney Barrett. Trump has already said his nominee will likely be a woman, and ACB was the runner-up to Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.
Barrett is a relative newcomer to the bench, joining the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit three years ago in October 2017. A graduate of Notre Dame University Law School, Barrett clerked for the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and later returned to Notre Dame’s law school as a member of the faculty.
