Two Missourians on President Trump’s List of Potential Supreme Court Nominees

Two Missourians are on a list of 20 names that are potential nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court.

President Donald Trump announced yesterday (Wednesday) that Senator Josh Hawley and Judge Sarah Pitlyk are now on his list of potential nominees he has been compiling since 2016.

Hawley responded on Twitter and said he appreciates the President’s confidence in listing him as a potential nominee, however has no interest in the high court.

Pitlyk was nominated by President Trump in September 2019 to be a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in December by a margin of 49-44.
