Holder Meeting Postponed
As we said last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee is likely to support Holder’s nomination, particularly with both Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fl.) vocally supporting him.
Until then, Mark Filip — the former deputy attorney general and now acting attorney general — will oversee the Justice Department.
Update: according to a committee spokeswoman, the vote has been postponed because of a scheduling conflict with a prayer service being held at the National Cathedral.
