Missing in Senate action — big jobs

Posted By on Thu, Jul 29, 2010 at 3:51 PM

U.S. Sens. Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln today cheered Senate committee approval of Polk County Sheriff Mike Oglesby of Mena as U.S. marshal for the western district of Arkansas.

All well and good. But we're the better part of two years into President Obama's term. There are going to be fewer Democrats in the Senate next year. Arkansas does not yet have a U.S. attorney nominated by the president in either the eastern or western district of Arkansas. Three important federal district judgeships sit vacant, with a nomination made for only one of them — P.K. Holmes in Fort Smith.

Somebody better get a move on.
