CNSNews is reporting that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will filibuster the controversial Obama nomination of Goodwin Liu for a seat on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The cloture vote for Liu is expected to occur at 2 p.m..
According to CNSNews:
“As a member of the ‘Gang of 14’ in 2005, McCain agreed that, ‘Nominees should be filibustered only under extraordinary circumstances,’” the Arizona senator’s communications director, Brooke Buchanan, told CNSNews.com on Wednesday in a statement. “The nomination of Mr. Godwin Liu does rise to a level of ‘extraordinary circumstances,’ and therefore McCain will seek to filibuster the nomination.”
