Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump today released a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justice nominees that he would vet to fill Justice Scalia’s seat, the Associated Press reports.

Among those on the list: Third Circuit Judge Thomas Hardiman.

Ilya Shapiro at Cato

John Yoo at National Review

Jim Geraghty at National Review

Paul Mirengoff at Powerline


UPDATE 2: Here is some good early Hardiman-focused coverage:
