Donald Trump just gave some of the biggest insights into his potential administration.

In an 11-person list released today, Trump revealed whom he would possibly pick as a US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) justice to fill the vacant seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, in an exclusive Associated Press (AP) report.

Here’s the complete list:

  • 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
  • Don Willett of Texas

The most prominent names on the list, of course are Diane Sykes, Thomas Lee and Don Willett, all of whom are known within the conservative movement.

Sykes was formerly married to ‘Never Trump’ conservative radio host Charlie Sykes. Thomas Lee is famously known as the brother of conservative Sen. Mike Lee R-Ut, who has yet to endorse Trump and who was seen as a potential SCOTUS nominee himself.

Meanwhile, Willett, like Trump, is an active user of Twitter, with a huge following. Willett has previously criticized Trump in the past, posting tweets like this: 

The Trump campaign said the list was “first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership.”
