According to the senior administration official, they are Justice Joan Larsen of the Michigan Supreme Court and Justice David Stras of the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton appointed more than 300 federal judges over the course of their terms.
