Washington Examiner: “Gary Johnson unveils potential SCOTUS pick list”

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.”

  1. Rebel Alliance

    How about John Buttrick, a Libertarian serving as US Judge for Arizona? How about his own 2012 running mate, Jim “The Police are Noble Public Servants” Gray?

  2. Ted Brown

    And also Clint Bolick, Arizona Supreme Court justice and a founder of Institute for Justice.

    No Judge Nap? The highest profile libertarian judge. The disaster candidate rolls on. Haven’t Both Castle and Trump mentioned judge Nap before as a possibility?
