Vote Tonight on Pillard Nomination

by Ed Whelan

Word is that Senate majority leader Harry Reid is pushing for a vote this evening on radical D.C. Circuit nominee Cornelia Pillard. My narrative inventory of posts on the Pillard nomination is here.

The vote would come 190 days after Pillard’s nomination. For context, consider that Senate Democrats obstructed John Roberts’s D.C. Circuit nomination for 729 days, Brett Kavanaugh’s for 1,036 days, and Miguel Estrada’s for 848 days before he withdrew. More data here.
