Senate Confirms Pryor To Appeals Court

by Steve

Well, the vote was a little closer this time, but this afternoon the Senate confirmed the last of the three DCA nominees that were the subject of the nuclear option deal when William Pryor won confirmation by a vote of 53-45.

Ben Nelson once again voted for Pryor, joined this time by Colorado’s Ken Salazar as the only two Democrats who voted with Bush and the American Taliban on this pick. But Lincoln Chafee, Susan Collins, and Olympia Snowe voted against Pryor.
