Today, I'm very proud that the Senate will vote to confirm a highly qualified judicial nominee whom I recommended, Arun Subramanian.
If confirmed, he will be the first–the first–South Asian judge in the Southern District of New York, which has one of the largest, if not the largest, South Asian populations in the country. He's a great judge. I’m looking forward to him serving well on the bench.
