They are:

Paul Fishman (Friedman, Kaplan, Seiler & Adelman)

Paul Fishman (Friedman, Kaplan, Seiler & Adelman)

-Jenny Durkan (Western District of Washington): The Seattle lawyer was nominated June 4. She would replace Jeffrey C. Sullivan, who has been the interim U.S. Attorney since John McKay was forced out in the 2006 U.S. Attorney purge. Read more about the nominee here.

-Paul Fishman (New Jersey): The New York lawyer was nominated June 4. He would replace Ralph Marra, who became acting U.S. Attorney after Chris Christie resigned in December 2008 to run for New Jersey governor. Read more about Fishman here.

The panel reported four U.S. Attorney nominees out of committee today. The panel has endorsed a total of 11 U.S. Attorney nominees, including five who were confirmed by the full Senate last month.

After the committee votes on Durkan and Fishman, it will still have to consider five more U.S. Attorney nominees. The panel has not announced when it will consider the five U.S. Attorney nominees.
