Iowa: Where the potential SCOTUS nominees roam

ThinkProgress editor Ian Millhiser speculates today on whom President Obama might select as his next Supreme Court nominee.  On the list: Cedar Rapids resident and newly confirmed Eighth Circuit Judge Jane Kelly.

So Iowa is now 2 for 2 on Eighth Circuit judges and potential Supreme Court shortlisters.  Two active Eighth Circuit judges call Iowa home: Steve Colloton and Jane Kelly.  And before the election last fall, Judge Colloton was listed as a potential Romney nominee.  (See here and here.)

We must be doing something right in the Hawkeye State.
