Andrew Hyman at Confirm Them comments on a South Carolina article declaring the nomination of Jim Haynes to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dead:
The Haynes nomination may or may not be dead, but returning his nomination certainly isn’t a killer. After all, Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination was returned, and he was renominated and confirmed. Note that Haynes was nominated in February of 2005, and thus he has been a “pending” nominee under the Gang of 14 Deal. However, if renominated, he would apparently be a “future” nominee under that deal.
Meanwhile, Paul at Powerline and Adler at NRO place the blame on South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
