Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer pleaded with Republican Senators on Monday to defeat President Trumps nominee to a North Carolina judgeship, saying Thomas Alvin Farr has shown he doesnt respect black voters rights.
Mr. Schumer said all 49 Democrats will vote against Mr. Farr, as will one Republican, Sen. Jeff Flake.
If they can sway another GOP senator, they could defeat the nomination, dealing a blow to Mr. Trump.
This is a man who stands for disenfranchisement of voters, particularly minority voters, that is what he stands for. You can try to parse it any way you want, but that is what he has done. That is not America, Mr. Schumer said on the chamber floor.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, set his confirmation vote up for later this week.
Mr. Farr was nominated to the federal bench in July of 2017, meaning hes waited longer than any other judicial vacancy. And the seat hes been nominated for is the longest vacancy of any federal court, dating back to at least the beginning of the Obama administration.

Schumer doesn’t respect Objective Logic.
One of the NPC's stock phrases to attempt to engender sympathy. "We're better than that", and "That's not who we are" are variants.
With this many RATs standing against him this guy must be great!
Dumb*ss Schumer will deserve our most dull guillotine following Revolution II.
And the government can make billions if they bid out the right to pull the lever on this bottom dwelling slime mold.
Hey Schu, howdja bet past high school, dumb*ss?
Collins, Murkowski, Corker, or Sasse. One or all of them will be "no" votes.
New Senate will confirm if it fails now
Communism is not American but the Democrats will never denounce a Communist.
Amen to that, I think so too!
Schumer is a lying, sleazy punk biotch.
Will Chuck put his knee pads on again ?
Schumer stands for pedophilia.
Hence the name. Senator Putzhead.
Let's Wrap This Baby Up, Folks!
If McConnell really wanted these two confirmed he’d hold off until January when there are 53 Republicans and no Flake or Corker.
PRyno wiil be in the R/v mirror too.
You nailed that, Friend. What a sorry vindictive human being he is.
“If they can sway another GOP senator, they could defeat the nomination, dealing a blow to Mr. Trump.”
My bet is that if the votes aren’t there right now, McConnell will postpone the vote for 45 days and not have to worry about Flake. The only “blow” in the Senate is that “blowhard” schmeckel, Schumer.
