Judicial NominationsThis morning, the President nominated Judge Samuel Alito of the Third Circuit to the U.S. Supreme Court. Here’s a link to the White House announcement and here’s a link to Judge Alito’s biography.

The NAM’s Judicial Review Committee (JRC) will review Judge Alito’s record and qualifications according to our stated criteria. This is the same process we used for Chief-Justice Roberts and were using for Harriet Miers prior to her withdrawal.

We will make a public announcement once the Judicial Review Committee reaches its result. Here’s a link to our press release on the topic.

Congratulations to Judge Alito on his nomination.
