When President Donald Trump sits down to pick a Supreme Court nominee to take the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, Phoenix native Bridget Bade will be on the list.

Trump added Bade 10 days ago, along with 19 others, to his short list of potential Supreme Court justices, bringing the total list of possible candidates to about 40.

Others on the latest list included Republican senators, former solicitors general and high-profile attorneys who argue regularly before the high court.

Bade may be on the shortlist, but she also has a relatively short judicial resume.
