President Barack Obama tapped Callahan, a state circuit judge in Missouri, for the post in October. He would succeed former U.S. Attorney Catherine L. Hanaway, who resigned earlier this year. Read more about Callahan here.

The panel has endorsed 26 U.S. Attorney nominees and 24 of those have won Senate confirmation thus far.  The committee has yet to schedule votes for another seven would-be U.S. Attorneys.

The committee’s agenda for Thursday also includes a bill that would establish the same sentencing guidelines for powder cocaine and crack offenses. The House Judiciary Committee approved its version of the legislation in July.

In addition, the panel is scheduled to resume consideration of legislation that would make it harder for courts to order reporters to divulge their sources. The media shield bill has been on the committee’s agenda since April.
