Judicial NominationsSeeing as though we were the first business group to endorse Judge Roberts and did so according to a set of criteria, we should also be the first to alert you that Judge Roberts recieved the nod of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 13 to 5 just a few minutes ago.

In our press release, we noted that Chairman Specter and Sen. Leahy led a dignified and judicious process that provided an opportunity for the nomination to be considered, debated and decided with thoroughness and comity.

VOTES FOR: Specter, Leahy, Hatch, Grassley, Kyl, DeWine, Kohl, Sessions, Feingold, Graham, Cornyn, Brownback.

VOTES AGAINST: Feinstein, Kennedy, Biden, Schumer, Durbin.

More on this later tonight and tomorrow.
