The White House has expanded its list of potential Supreme Court nominees after Sen. Susan Collins (Maine) urged President Trump to broaden his search, the GOP senator said Sunday.
“The White House counsel told me there have been a few additional, potential nominees added to that list,” Collins said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” while discussing her meeting with Trump earlier this week.
Collins said that she suggested Trump broaden his search beyond the list of 25 candidates that the White House released in November. The senator told ABC that Trump has added five judges to that list.
The White House released five additional names of potential Supreme Court nominees in November, though Collins appeared to be referring on Sunday to more recent additions.
