A 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judge who hails from Arizona is on the list of prospective U.S. Supreme Court justices that President Donald Trump could choose from if he wins a second term in November.
The list of 20 potential Supreme Court appointees that Trump released on Wednesday included Bridget Bade, an Arizona judge whom he appointed to the 9th Circuit in 2019 to replace the retiring Judge Barry Silverman. The U.S. Senate confirmed her on a 78-21 vote, with both of Arizona’s senators, Democrat Kysten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally, voting to confirm.
Prior to joining the 9th Circuit, Bade was a U.S. magistrate judge in Arizona from 2012-2019, and she served as an assistant U.S. attorney from 2006-2012. She’s an Arizona native, and received both her bachelor’s degree and law degree from Arizona State University
