Davis, Perez: Is today the day?

The U.S. Senate could vote today to confirm Andre M. Davis to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Thomas E. Perez to be assistant U.S. attorney general for civil rights.

The Senate, which goes on summer recess after today’s session, plans to try to get through as many outstanding presidential nominations as possible before leaving Washington, says a Senate aide. No word yet on whether Davis, a U.S. District Court judge in Baltimore, or Perez, who heads Maryland’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, is on the Senate’s agenda. 

The Senate will return from recess on Sept. 8.
