Another hurdle cleared for 4th Circuit nominees

This from Kay Hagan

Judges Jim Wynn and Al Diaz were both approved by the Judiciary Committee today — with the overwhelming support of both Democrats and Republicans. North Carolina’s nominees for the 4th Circuit have for far too long been held up by petty, partisan politics. North Carolina, the largest state within the 4th Circuit, has been underrepresented for the court’s entire 118-year history. When I came to Washington, I made the case directly to the President that North Carolina deserved more than one seat on the 4th Circuit, and the White House listened. Today, fair representation for our state is one step closer to a reality. I will work with my colleagues to ensure Judges Diaz and Wynn receive a vote in the full Senate as soon as possible.”
