WASHINGTON (AP/WMOT) — Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander is firing back at Majority Leader Harry Reid over comments the Democrat made concerning a Republican filibuster.
Republicans are holding up 17 Obama Administration judicial nominations. Reid is hoping to pull together the 60 votes he needs to limit debate on the appointments and force a vote.
The Majority Leader says he’s acting in response to the slow pace of confirmations of Obama's picks for the federal bench. He said Republicans should end the delays immediately to ease the backlog of cases in federal courts.
