Senate Confirms Supreme Court Short-Lister Don Willett to Fifth Circuit Appeals Court


ㅤPictured: Don Willett

ㅤ”Before his confirmation, Willett served as a justice on the Texas Supreme Court. A graduate of Duke Law School, he began his career as a law clerk to a judge on the Fifth Circuit court he now joins. He later served as a special assistant to the President in the White House under Bush 43, then as Texas deputy attorney general.
ㅤWillett is also an Evangelical Christian. Although Evangelicals account for between 15 and 24 percent of the electorate, based on how the term is defined, they are currently underrepresented on the federal appeals courts. Christian conservatives are delighted to see President Trump’s willingness to consider members of their community for the bench, in an era where orthodox Christian beliefs are ridiculed in elite circles.”
