During a speech at a religious broadcasting convention, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis noted that the next president might have to replace Supreme Court justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas. He also said that finding a replacement for these two justices might be difficult due to their importance to the field of jurisprudence.
According to DeSantis, if a president chooses to replace Chief Justice John Roberts with a conservative, the court would become more liberal. He also stated that it's crucial that the next president makes sure that the individuals he or she picks are aligned with the conservative values of the country. Over the next couple of years, he or she could potentially replace Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Chief Justice Roberts, which would result in a conservative majority on the court.
In his first month in office, DeSantis emphasized his role in pushing Florida to a more conservative direction by implementing age limits on the court's justices. This move was made to ensure that the court would no longer be able to make decisions based on personal agendas.

A president should ensure that the people he or she picks for the Supreme Court are conservative enough to uphold the country's Constitution and protect its institutions. With the right individuals, a conservative majority could last for decades.
