GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has a choice for the next Supreme Court justice: He wants "someone as close to [Antonin] Scalia as I could find."

"It will be a conservative person, a person with great intellect," Trump told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "And I would really use that as the model. As close to Scalia. I thought Scalia was terrific."

Earlier on the program, ex-candidate Carly Fiorina, now stumping for Ted Cruz, claimed that it would not be known what kind of justice Trump would appoint if he wins the presidency, but that Cruz' pick would be a Constitutional conservative, while Trump's likely would not.

President Barack Obama will announce his choice to replace Scalia, who died earlier this year, at 11 a.m.
