The Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved U.S. Attorney nominees John Paul Kacavas for the District of New Hampshire and B. Todd Jones for the District of Minnesota late this afternoon.
The meeting was originally scheduled for noon today, but was postponed due to the length of an earlier committee hearing.
The panel unanimously approved last week U.S. Attorney nominees Preet Bharara for the Southern District of New York, Tristram Coffin for the District of Vermont and Joyce Vance for the Northern District of Alabama. The panel still must consider the U.S. Attorney nominations of Jenny Durkan for the Western District of Washington and Paul Fishman for the District of New Jersey, which the White House forwarded to the Senate last month.
The full Senate must still approve the nominees before they can become U.S. Attorneys.
