Our lower federal courts have more than 100 vacancies that need to be filled. When deciding whether to confirm the president’s nominees to our nation’s courts, the Senate should send to the bench judges who:
- Will decide cases fairly and impartially.
- Are eminently qualified for the position and knowledgeable of the law.
- Will follow the Constitution faithfully and not legislate from the bench.
Patrick Bumatay and Lawrence VanDyke, recently nominated by the president, fit these criteria. Tell your senators to confirm them quickly.
