Description

The Senate is blocking another of President Bush’s judicial nominees — but this time it’s Republicans and not Democrats playing the role of obstructionists. Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) last week sought unanimous consent to take up the nomination of Leon Holmes to a seat on the U.S. District Court in Arkansas. Pryor, who once practiced law with Holmes, a Republican, in Little Rock, noted that he has been “languishing” on the Senate’s calendar for more than six months. Pryor said he is “perplexed” as to why Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) hasn’t scheduled a floor vote on the nomination.
