Bush sends up more judges

I missed this yesterday…from a White House press release:

President George W. Bush today announced his intention to nominate the following five individuals:

Terrence W. Boyle, of North Carolina, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Fourth Circuit William James Haynes II, of Virginia, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Fourth Circuit William Gerry Myers III, of Idaho, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Ninth Circuit Norman Randy Smith, of Idaho, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Ninth Circuit Michael Brunson Wallace, of Mississippi, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Fifth Circuit

UPDATE: From the Washington Post:

NASHVILLE, Aug. 30 — Bucking opposition in the Senate, President Bush on Wednesday nominated five people for the U.S. Court of Appeals, including one whom Democrats have threatened to block with a filibuster.

News that Bush had decided to nominate the conservative jurists came before Bush spoke at a fundraiser for Bob Corker, who faces a tough Senate race against Democratic nominee Harold Ford Jr.
