Ron Johnson moves to block William Pocan nomination to federal courtroom

Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson explained late Tuesday that he’s opposing the nomination of Milwaukee County Circuit Judge William Pocan to an open up seat on the federal court in Green Bay.

Johnson reported in a assertion he has been “hearing fears from the Inexperienced Bay lawful community that they wanted a judge who is regionally based mostly and actively associated in their local community. That is not the scenario with Decide Pocan.”

In the unusually worded assertion, Johnson then pivoted and claimed: “In addition, the tragedy in Waukesha by no means really should have transpired.”
