The Senate confirmed two more appeals court picks Thursday, closing out a week that saw them devote all their time to filling the federal judiciary with President Trumps nominees.
Including the two latest picks, they confirmed four circuit judges and one district judge this week overcoming Democratic filibuster attempts for each. Senators voted 56-41 to confirm Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid for a seat on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, then voted 54-43 for Stephanos Bibas, who is nominated to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Justice Eid will fill Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuchs vacant seat on the 10th Circuit. Four Democrats joined the GOP in backing her confirmation: Sens. Michael Bennet of Colorado, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia was the only Democrat to back Mr. Bibas, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

One year = three judges.
At this rate it will take nearly seven centuries to fill up all the empty seats.
