Senate Confirms Southwick to 5th Circuit
The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the controversial nomination of Leslie Southwick to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, after thwarting a potential Democratic filibuster that Republicans warned would set a bad precedent for future Democratic presidents.
