This Slate of Judicial Nominees Should Be Promptly Confirmed
‘President Trump continues to send us impressive judicial nominees with sterling qualifications. I urge all my colleagues to join me in voting to promptly confirm this slate.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) delivered the following remarks today on the Senate floor regarding the need to confirm more of the president’s well-qualified judicial nominees:
“Yesterday, the Senate advanced the nomination of Robert Wier to serve on the Eastern District Court of Kentucky by a vote of 90-1. This was a needless delay, but I look forward to confirming this well-qualified nominee later this morning.
“Next, the Senate will turn to Fernando Rodriguez, Jr., the president’s selection to be a U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Texas. Mr. Rodriguez is a graduate of Yale and the University of Texas. He’s earned recognition for his tireless efforts to combat human trafficking. His peers praise his work ethic and knack for tackling complicated issues.
“President Trump continues to send us impressive judicial nominees with sterling qualifications. I urge all my colleagues to join me in voting to promptly confirm this slate.”
