Where Are The Judges? Senate Edition

Email Email Print

Yesterday the Judiciary Committee cancelled a hearing that had been scheduled for judicial nominees.

And while there may be votes on some circuit court nominees later today, the Senate has once again bogged down when it comes to up-or-down votes on judicial nominees.

The Gang of 14 promised, but hasn’t delivered, a return to normalcy in the confirmation process.

Majority Leader Frist should bring all nominees already voted out of committee to a floor vote before the August recess, and also work with Chairman Specter to lay out a schedule for the September session.  A failure to get an up-or-down vote on Peter Keisler, the long awaited nominee for the 11th seat on the D.C. Circuit, will be a significant defeat for the GOP, just below the failure to fill a SCOTUS seat on the list of major Senate screw-ups.
