“Attorneys Jones and Conner are highly qualified to assume the important role of Judge and the duty of protecting the Constitution and ensuring the effective operation of our judicial system.

These judgeships are vital to our national security goals, and I urge my colleagues to work with the President to fill these vacancies in a timely manner.” –  Then Sen.
