The Senate voted to confirm Andrew Oldham to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Wednesday, making him President Donald Trump’s 23rd circuit court confirmation.

Oldham, a former clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, has served as a general counsel for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. He’s held several roles in that office, and also served in former President George W.
