The leading Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee says he will vote against John Ashcroft’s nomination as Attorney General. Though Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont announced his opposition on the Senate floor this morning, he promised not to delay consideration of Ashcroft with a filibuster. Leahy says Ashcroft is the wrong nominee at this time. He says the nation needed to come together and complained Ashcroft was a controversial and divisive nominee from the start.
