The Romney campaign added several attorneys from “Lawyers for Fred Thompson” to the Romney for President Advisory Committee on the Constitution and the Courts.

According to the campaign’s press release,

“This group [the advisory committee], chaired by Professor Douglas W. Kmiec, former constitutional legal counsel to President Ronald Reagan, has been advising Governor Romney on the important legal issues confronting the country today.

Joining Romney for President after having served as National Co-Chair of Lawyers for Fred Thompson, Victoria Toensing said, ‘Appointing strong judges is one of our President’s most important responsibilities. The next President will make a number of appointments, and I am confident Governor Romney will nominate judges in the mold of President Bush’s nominees, Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito. I am proud to work with Governor Romney and this outstanding group of legal minds.’”

In addition to Ms. Toensing, others joining the campaign from “Lawyers for Fred Thompson” were Lizette D. Benedi, Reginald Brown, Rachel L. Brand, Joseph E. diGenova, Charles J. Cooper, Michael R. Dimino, Viet D. Dinh, Noel J. Francisco and Eileen J. O’Connor. The press release included bios of each attorney.

Another attorney joining the Romney campaign was Eugene Scalia who has served in the current administration as well as the administrations of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.
