Judge Crawford on the verge of confirmation

Posted: Updated:

A big step forward for the top nominee to fill the federal bench in Vermont.

Monday night the Senate voted to end debate on Vermont Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Crawford, which essentially seals the deal on him being the state's next federal judge.

The full Senate is expected to make a final confirmation vote late Tuesday morning.

Crawford would succeed federal judge William Sessions, who took senior status this month.
