The Senate Judiciary Committee is slated to consider the nominee to lead the Western District of Arkansas U.S. Attorney’s Office at its Nov. 18 meeting.

Conner Eldridge (Summit Bank)

President Barack Obama nominated William Conner Eldridge Jr. on Sept. 29 to replace Deborah J. Groom, who has led the U.S. Attorney’s office since the resignation of former U.S. Attorney Robert Balfe in January 2009.

Eldridge was the chief executive officer for Summit Bank in Arkansas before he stepped down this year. He is currently a special deputy prosecutor for the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office of Clark County, Ark. Read more about him here.

The panel has yet to schedule votes for another four would-be U.S. Attorneys. The committee has approved 72 of Obama’s U.S. Attorney nominees, all of whom have won Senate confirmation.
