Senate leaders strike deal on 15 judicial nominees, setting up early recess

GO TRUMP GO :D

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) have struck a deal to vote on a package of 15 judges and recess the Senate until the Nov. 6 election.

All of the nominees, including three circuit court nominees, are expected to pass despite opposition from liberal groups that fought an all-out-battle to block Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month. The development is welcome news for vulnerable incumbents in tough races eager to get back home to campaign.

The Senate had been scheduled to be in session until Oct. 26.
Now most lawmakers likely won’t return to Washington until the week after the Nov. 6 election.

McConnell at around 4:30 pm Thursday circulated a hotline request to vote on the nominees, with two minutes of debate on each equally divided between the parties.

The chamber began voting on the package of nominees shortly before 5 pm.
The nominees include David James Porter of Pennsylvania to sit on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, Ryan Nelson of Idaho to sit on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and Richard Sullivan of New York to sit on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.

Some District Court nominees include William Ray of Georgia to serve for the Northern District of Georgia, Liles Clifton Burke of Alabama to the North District of Alabama, Michael Juneau of Louisiana to serve for the Western District of Louisiana and Mark Norris Sr. of Tennessee to the Western District of Tennessee."
