JUST IN: Trump Releases List of 11 Possible Supreme Court Picks
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has released a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justices he plans to vet to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Trump's picks include Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado and Raymond Gruender of Missouri.
Also on the list are: 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.
Trump said in March he planned to release the list of potential nominees to ease concerns about his conservative credentials in the Republican primary.
He said then the list would include judges "that everybody respects, likes and totally admires" and "great conservative judges, great intellects, the people that you want."
Shannon Bream reported on The Real Story on the backgrounds of some of these judges. Bream said several of the judges have been mentioned before as possible SCOTUS picks, namely Sykes.
She said several have served as clerks to Supreme Court justices. Bream said the judges come from all different backgrounds, but are all viewed as a conservative or right-leaning.
Bream pointed out that Thomas Lee of Utah is the brother of Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT).
President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to fill Scalia's seat, but Republicans have said they will not hold a vote on any nominee until after the election.
