CNN: Senate Democrats grapple with pressure to remove GOP’s ‘blue slip’ authority on judges
ACS President Russ Feingold was quoted in CNN, commenting on the ability for Senate Democrats to confirm as many judicial nominees as possible during the next two years.
“This is a very well positioned situation,” said former Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, who served on the Senate Judiciary Committee and now leads American Constitution Society, a progressive group. “It would be an historic failure to not take maximum advantage of it by confirming as many judges as possible.”
