The Evans-Novak Report says that Senate Republicans are finally moving forward again on some of President Bush’s stalled judicial nominations:
After months of laying off the judiciary issue, the Senate is now expected bring up the judicial nominations of D.C. Circuit Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and 4th Circuit nominee Terrence Boyle. Republicans hope to hold votes that will put political pressure on key Democrats. The strategy of filibustering judicial nominations has been disastrous for Democrats so far, and in key Senate races — especially in heartland states such as Minnesota, Michigan and Ohio — their intransigence could be a good issue for Republicans, even if confirmations prove impossible.
Good news if true. Note that this was previewed in Scott’s interview with Senator Frist yesterday.
