Jun 24 2020
WASHINGTON — Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) voted to confirm Cory T. Wilson as a United States Circuit Judge for the Fifth Circuit, marking the 200th judge confirmed during President Donald Trump’s Administration — the most Senate-confirmed judges at this point of a presidency in that last 40 years.
“As a member of the U.S. Senate, I have the responsibility to evaluate and confirm judges who will uphold the Constitution, deliver justice and preserve our freedoms,” said Sen. Moran. “My colleagues and I have worked diligently with the president and the administration to fill judicial vacancies across the country, and today, the Senate achieved the historic milestone of confirming the 200th Trump-appointed judge. These judges, including Judge Broomes and Judge Teeter serving in Kansas, will have a generational impact on our country.”
Kansas Judicial Confirmations during the Trump Administration:
- John Broomes was confirmed as a District Judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas in April of 2018.
- Holly Teeter was confirmed as a United States District Court Judge for the District of Kansas in August of 2018.
