Sen. Bob Corker yesterday announced his support for Travis McDonough, President Barack Obama’s nominee to replace Judge Curtis Collier on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, the Times Free Press reports. “Travis McDonough is well-respected in Chattanooga, and I look forward to supporting his nomination,” Corker said in an email. Tennessee’s senior senator Lamar Alexander said he was looking “forward to learning more about…McDonough and his interest in serving.” The White House says that McDonough’s fate now lies with the Senate as his name has officially been submitted.
