( – On Monday, Vivek Ramaswamy, a 2024 Republican presidential candidate, published a list of 16 people that he would potentially nominate to join the federal appellate courts or U.S. Supreme Court if he is successful in winning the presidential election. He is the first member of the Republican primary so far to have released a list of his top judicial appointments.

Ramaswamy’s list includes candidates that are already in Congress, including Sens. Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas). According to the presidential candidate, both of these men would be a top option for the country’s highest court. Apart from his list, he also pointed out that he would elevate the federal judges who struck down the mask mandate on travel areas, and the abortion pill FDA’s approval.

Former President Donald Trump had heavily focused on the Supreme Court during his 2016 bid. Conservative voters at the time were passionate about having a Republican president appoint Justice Antonin Scalia’s, who had died earlier that year, replacement. During his 2016 primary, Trump released a list of potential nominees that he would suggest for the Supreme Court, and placed a lot of his attention on ensuring that voters were aware that the judicial agenda was going to be one of his primary focus areas during his presidency.

Ramaswamy during an interview said that it was important for presidential candidates to be transparent about what their plans are. The Republican presidential candidate is trying to encourage voters to place their focus on the Supreme Court as the Democrats have recently been energized by the increase in the court’s conservative rulings.
