Halligan Vote Could Rekindle Judges Fight

Douglas Graham/CQ Roll Call
Grassley, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he hopes Republicans can again filibuster Halligan’s nomination, a nominee to the second-highest court in the land, who they believe has an activist record.

“More than 60 percent of the current vacancies don’t have nominees,” the Grassley spokeswoman said. “So to blame the Republicans for the number of vacancies is pretty disingenuous.”

This version corrects the Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Halligan.
