Confirmations Coming

Howard Bashman rounds up news on the coming confirmation votes here. To summarize: There will be a cloture vote on Judge William Pryor this afternoon after the confirmation vote on Justice Janice Rogers Brown. Pryor’s confirmation vote could come as early as tomorrow. There should be three more confirmation votes–on Griffin and McKeague as previously reported, and on Thomas Griffith for the D.C. Circuit–next week. Meanwhile, The Hill reports that Frist is in no rush to bring other, more controversial nominations (e.g. Haynes, Myers, Kavanaugh, Saad) to the floor as there are other matters (Bolton, energy bill, etc.) that the Senate must address.
