3 candidates named for judge posts

DENVER ” The White House has sent the names of three candidates to a senate committee for confirmation to fill vacancies in Colorado’s U.S. District Court.

U.S. Sens. Wayne Allard and Ken Salazar made the announcement Thursday.

Salazar, a Democrat, and Allard, a Republican, support two of the candidates but disagree on the third, Philip Brimmer, who is the Special Prosecutions Section Chief at the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The two other candidates are former Colorado Deputy Chief Attorney General Christine Arguello and former assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Goldberg.

The nominees now go before the Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration.

Salazar said he would not support Brimmer. Brimmer received the endorsement of U.S. Attorney Troy Eid.
