Fishman’s nomination faces no apparent obstacles

President Obama's nominee for U.S. Attorney, Paul Fishman, is expected to win a speedy confirmation by the United States Senate

President Obama's nominee for U.S. Attorney, Paul Fishman, is expected to win a speedy confirmation by the United States Senate and could be in office as early as this summer.

It is noteworthy that Obama's first U.S. Attorney appointment came from New Jersey, where the previous federal prosecutor is seeking the Republican nomination for Governor. Since last fall, Democrats have made it clear that they want their own person sworn in before the General Election kicks into gear after Labor Day. An agreement by the state's two Democratic Senators, Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez, made it relatively easy for Obama to nominate Fishman.
