Jordan confirmation vote set for Wednesday

After much delay, the Senate will finally vote on the confirmation of Judge Adalberto Jordan to be a judge on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit at noon on Wednesday.

Jordan has bipartisan backing, but Democratic leadership was forced to hold a cloture vote on Monday because several GOP senators attempted to block the confirmation.

The Senate will convene at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
