The Senate confirmed two U.S. District Court judicial nominations: Benjamin Beaton for the Western District of Kentucky, and Toby Crouse for the District of Kansas.

Members voted against 47-50 against limiting debate on Judy Shelton’s nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. Republican Senators Susan Collins (ME), Mitt Romney (UT), and Lamar Alexander (TN) and all Democratic senators voted against Ms. Shelton’s nomination. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) switched his vote from “Yes” to “No” and then filed a motion to reconsider, allowing for a second cloture vote at a later date. Republican Senators Chuck Grassley (IA) and Rick Scott (FL), were not present. Senator Grassley was quarantining after testing positive for COVID-19, and this was the first time he had missed a vote in 27 years. Senator Scott was also quarantining after being exposed to the virus. close
