Senate panel advances controversial nomination of Neomi Rao

Washington (CNN)Neomi Rao, President Donald Trump’s nominee for a powerful appellate court who came under early and unexpected criticism from two Republicans, was successfully voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Her nomination will now come before the full Senate. Rao is perhaps one of the highest profile nominees to come before the new Congress, and some of her supporters have suggested she might some day be a nominee to the Supreme Court.
Trump took the unusual step of announcing her nomination himself last November, for the now vacant seat of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.
