WASHINGTON - Kansas' top federal prosecutor will face
Senate lawmakers on Tuesday at a hearing on his nomination to the
federal bench in Wichita.
But U.S. Attorney Eric Melgren is running out of time to win
confirmation to the seat.
Congress is expected to adjourn at the end of this week or early
next week so lawmakers can return home to campaign before the
November election. It's not clear if lawmakers will return after
that.
Melgren was nominated in July and has the support of both Kansas
senators, Republicans Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts.
Brownback says he hopes the committee considers the nomination
quickly.
Melgren is a longtime friend of Brownback's and has previously
worked for the senator.
