“After Success in Seating Federal Judges, Biden Hits Resistance”

N.Y. Times‘ Carl Hulse offers an update on where the Biden administration efforts to appoint federal judges stand.

“In contrast to the administration’s struggle on its legislative agenda, the lower-profile judicial push has been one of the highlights of the first year of the Biden presidency. Democrats say they intend to aggressively press forward to counter the Trump judicial juggernaut of the previous four years, and they may have limited time to do so, given the possibility of losing control of the Senate in next year’s midterm elections.”

In particular, the article emphasizes that having largely exhausted opportunities in states that are represented by two Democratic Senators, the process will be slower going forward.
