Word on the street is that Steve Matthews will get the Fourth Circuit nomination. The State newspaper has this story. As I have reported before, reliable sources indicated that Judge Kittredge of the S.C. Court of Appeals and Matthews were the final two contenders for the position. Both would be excellent additions to the Fourth Circuit.
Once the nomination is final, I will post more. I just hope our two Senators will fight hard for Steve. He is intellectually gifted, a gentleman, and should be confirmed. He is a nominee worth fighting for.
