Strangely, some of the fiercest opposition to Pryor comes from a small band of Christian conservatives. Their arguments are sincere, but wrongheaded.

How to Replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court

Rob Natelson, The American Spectator

President-elect Trump says he wants to nominate a justice like the late Antonin Scalia to the U.S. Supreme Court. That means a justice who follows the judicial philosophy of “originalism.” Originalism is the view that we should interpret the Constitution much as we interpret other legal documents — in accordance with the understanding of the people who adopted it.

This Woman Should Be Trump’s First Supreme Court Pick

Jake Curtis, National Review

All of those named on Donald Trump's Supreme Court list should contribute to a sense of optimism among liberty-loving legal conservatives.
