Donald Trump has released a list of 11 potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court, following the vacancy left by the death of conservative judge Antonin Scalia in February. Trump's list includes Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado, Raymond Gruender of Missouri, Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin, and Don Willett of Texas, The Associated Press reports.

In March, Trump said his nominees would be people "everybody respects, likes, and totally admires" as well as "great conservative judges, great intellects, the people that you want."
