Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson unveiled a list of potential Supreme Court nominees he would choose from, if elected president.
The third-party candidate’s list includes six names, including five men and one woman:
- Alex Kozinski, circuit judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
- Randy Barnett, director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution.
- Janice Rogers Brown, D.C. Circuit Court judge and former California Supreme Court justice.
- Tom Campbell, former member of Congress and dean of the Chapman University School of Law.
- Miguel Estrada, partner at the Washington, D.C., law office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, where he is a member of the firm’s Appellate and Constitutional Law Practice Group.
- Jonathan Turley, Professor, George Washington University Law School
- I have made clear that I believe the Supreme Court should be guided by a loyalty to the original and fundamental principles of limited government and liberty embodied in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,” Johnson said in a statement. “As president, when the opportunity arises, I will nominate justices who have proven records of demonstrating that loyalty to the Constitution.”
