President Trump on Wednesday released an updated list of possible nominees for the Supreme Court in a repeat of a strategy he employed during the 2016 campaign.

The list includes three sitting Republican Senators: Ted Cruz of Texas, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and Josh Hawley of Missouri.

Trump said on Wednesday that the picks “will ensure equal justice, equal treatment and equal rights for citizens of every race, color, religion and creed.”

Below is the full list Trump announced Wednesday, which is an update to the one he released in May 2016.
