Harry Reid

This Dec. 4, 2012, file photo shows Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev. pausing during his news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Impeded no more by Republican blocking tactics, Democrats are on track to win confirmation of up to 88 of President Barack Obama’s top judicial nominations this year, a total that would be the highest for any president in two decades. Reid is hoping to confirm a dozen more before adjournment later this week, votes he is pushing knowing that the Republicans who control the Senate next year will be less accommodating. (AP Photo/J.
