Senate Judiciary Committee Advances Four Nominees To Full Senate On Bipartisan Basis

WASHINGTON – Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced four nominations for consideration by the full Senate, including two U.S. Attorney nominees.

“This week, we celebrated the confirmation of the 100th judge under the Biden Administration. It’s a notable milestone - not just because of the pace that we are filling judicial vacancies, but also because of the outstanding credentials of the confirmed nominees. They are professionally diverse, highly qualified, and reflective of America – qualities that will help ensure a fair system of justice is delivered,” said U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  “In addition to federal judges, the Committee also considers nominations to several executive branch agencies, like we saw in our meeting today. As our Committee continues to fulfill its Constitutional mandate to advise and consent, I look forward to presenting more nominees to the full Senate for consideration.”

The following nominees advanced with the indicated vote totals:

  • Rosemarie Hidalgo, to be Director of the Violence Against Women Office: 12-9;
  • Amy Lefkowitz Solomon, to be an Assistant Attorney General, Office of Justice Programs: 15-6; 
  • Kate E. Brubacher, to be United States Attorney for the District of Kansas: 14-7; and
  • Ismail J. Ramsey, to be United States Attorney for the Northern District of California: 17-4;
