Many believe, and rightfully so, that even more important than our next president’s VP pick is his or her pick to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia, whose replacement could either maintain the status quo or flip the balance of the court entirely.
So it was exciting to see Colorado’s very own state Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid make Donald Trump’s short list for potential Supreme Court nominees, today.
Eid has consistently stood up for school choice reform, small government and taxpayers against fellow justices who are known for their political activism. That kind of experience builds character and a strong backbone – qualities that Scalia had an abundance of and would be great to see in his replacement.
And while we have no doubt that Trump will give Hillary Clinton a good run for her money in Colorado this November, he does have work to do here. This shout out to Eid will certainly help his standing with conservatives in Colorado, who overwhelming supported Ted Cruz at the party’s convention in April.
