During a confirmation hearing that was at times tense and emotional, two California-based nominees for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit faced questioning from home state senators who oppose their nominations.

California’s Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris have come out publicly against President Donald Trump’s nomination of Daniel Collins and Kenneth Lee to the Ninth Circuit, declining to return the so-called blue slips that indicate their sign-off.
