Happy Friday, and first day of September! This week, Avalon Zoppo highlights President Joe Biden’s first judicial nominee for a U.S. district court in Texas– a rare red state pick. But there are plenty of other vacancies without nominees in Texas and other states with two Republican senators. Contributor Jimmy Hoover notes Clarence Thomas’ explanation for not having disclosed earlier the hospitality he received from billionaire Harlan Crow.

As always, please reach out to Avalon at [email protected] with any tips or feedback. Follow her on what was once called Twitter at @AvalonZoppo. Jimmy can be reached at [email protected]. Follow him on what is now called X at @JimmyHooverDC.
