President Trump Holds Rally In New Hampshire Day Before State's Primary

The final vacant judicial seat in Texas is about to be filled by another of many Trump appointees. Houston lawyer Drew Tipton is expected to be confirmed soon to a lifetime appointment to a district judgeship in Corpus Christi. When Trump took office, Texas had more vacant judicial seats than most other states. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, changed Senate procedures to speed the process of filling court vacancies. Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz say the new judges are strict constitutional interpreters.
