Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy released a list of people he would consider nominating to the Supreme Court if elected president, and two of the figures on his list are sitting GOP senators.
Ramaswamy listed nine figures as high court candidates, including Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah.
He also listed seven appellate court candidates.
“Today I am unveiling my hand-picked list of judicial appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court & to the federal Courts of Appeals,” Ramaswamy tweeted.
“Biden’s top focus appeared to be on diversity of race & gender. While I drew from diverse experiences – current & former federal judges, a former Solicitor General, two U.S. Senators – my sole criterion was to select candidates with an unwavering commitment to an originalist understanding of the U.S. Constitution, who also understand the unique threats to liberty in the 21st century (including lurking state action). Our courts remain the last line of defense against the overreach and weaponization of government. As President I will appoint judges who will protect the integrity of our constitutional Republic,” Ramaswamy wrote.
President Joe Biden pledged to nominate the first black woman to the Supreme Court and fulfilled that promise by selecting Ketanji Brown Jackson for the role.
Ramaswamy, who was one of the Republican presidential primary candidates interviewed by Tucker Carlson at an event last week, has signed the Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee’s “Presidential Promise to American Women.”
“As President of the United States, I promise to uphold the truth that women are exclusively female. Only women can get pregnant and bear children. Only women can be mothers,” the pledge reads in part. “Under my Administration, the status and dignity of women and girls will not be compromised in law or policy.”
Former President Donald Trump has also signed the pledge.
“There are two sexes. If you have XX chromosomes, you’re a woman. If you have XY chromosomes, you’re a man. Period. Gender dysphoria is a mental health disorder. Affirming a kid’s confusion isn’t compassion. It’s cruelty. That’s the TRUTH. Proud to sign the @CWforA pledge,” Ramaswamy tweeted.
