SUPREME COURT: "Supreme Court judge. So, you know, I have a list of twenty. I've gone through them. We met with numerous candidates. They’re outstanding in every case. They were largely recommended and highly recommended by Federalist Society. And Jim DeMint was also very much involved in this group, which is fantastic. And he’s a fantastic guy. So between Leo and Jim DeMint and some senators and some congress people, we have a great group of people. I'll be making the decision on who we will put up for Justice of the United States Supreme Court – a replacement for the great, great Justice Scalia. That will be probably within two weeks of the 20th. So within about two weeks, probably the second week, I consider the first day because we'll all still be doing some pretty good signings. And I think what we'll do is we'll wait til Monday[1-16-17]."
