The Senate on Wednesday voted to confirm a second judge in as many days to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, flipping the court’s composition to a majority of Republican-appointees.

The Senate voted 80-15 to confirm Florida state Supreme Court Justice Barbara Lagoa to the federal bench. Her vote comes one day after the Senate voted 64-31 to confirm fellow state Supreme Court Justice Robert J. Luck to the same court.
