PN 2117 Ensuring Judicial Nominees are Confirmed to the Federal Bench (Roll Call 258)
This roll call confirms Jonathan A. Kobes as the Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit. The vote is significant considering Senator Flake (R-AZ, ACUF Lifetime 93.1%) attempted to blackmail the Senate and oppose all judicial nominees until a bill protecting the Mueller Investigation was brought to a vote. ACU supports Kobes and other judicial nominees who have demonstrated a commitment to defending the Constitution and supported this nomination. The Senate confirmed Kobes on December 11, 2018 by a vote of 50-50, with Vice President Mike Pence (ACUF Lifetime 99.6%) voting "Yes" to break the tie.
