The White House has stood by nomination of Michael Boggs to serve on a U.S. district court in Georgia despite opposition from some Democratic senators and rights groups.
On Tuesday, as Boggs faced a confirmation hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Committee, he received plaudits from Republicans like Sens. Chuck Grassley and Saxby Chambliss, but had to face harsh questioning from Democrats, including Sens. Richard Blumenthal, Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein.
