Reuters: Biden nominates 5 new judges, but not Republican abortion opponent
ACS President Russ Feingold was quoted in a Reuters article about President Biden's most recent batch of federal judicial nominees.
ACS' Judicial Nominations Project actively tracks federal judicial vacancies, nominations, and diversity data.
The latest nominations came as progressives have stepped up calls for the White House and Senate Democrats to move quicker to fill 120 judicial vacancies before Republicans can potentially retake the chamber in November's midterm elections.
"It would be a historic mistake to not take advantage of the coming weeks," said Russ Feingold, a Democratic former senator from Wisconsin and leader of the American Constitution Society.
