Progressive Position:
Nay
Progressive Result:
Loss

This vote was to confirm Dennis Shedd, Bush's nominee to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. Progressives opposed Shedd's nomination because of his record of siding with corporations in race and gender discrimination cases, often in circumstances where the evidence clearly favored the plaintiff. With Progressives and virtually all Democrats voting against him, Shedd was confirmed, 55-44.
