Thomas' comments came in a speech to University of Nebraska-Lincoln law students Thursday and were reported by the Lincoln Journal Star ).

Thomas is a George native who has worked in Washington, D.C., since 1993.

He said the court would benefit from a more balanced geographical mix that "reflects the fact this is a big country, not just the Northeast."

Five of the nine justices have strong ties to Boston, New York and central New Jersey.
