    ALEXANDER. Mr. President, in a few minutes we will be voting on the President's nominee to fill a vacancy in the Eastern District of Tennessee. Mr. McDonough is well known to me and is well known to my colleague, Senator Corker.

    Mr. McDonough received his undergraduate degree from Sewanee before going on to law school at Vanderbilt. He was a member of a prominent Chattanooga law firm, Miller & Martin. He was chief of staff to Chattanooga's mayor. He is a well-qualified man. We are fortunate that he is willing to serve, and we are fortunate the President nominated him. I urge my colleagues to vote for him.

    I yield the floor.

    Mr. President, I yield back all time.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there objection? Without objection, it is so ordered.

    The question is, Will the Senate advise and consent to the McDonough nomination? Mr. ALEXANDER. I ask for the yeas and nays.

    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Is there a sufficient second? There appears to be a sufficient second.

    The clerk will call the roll.

    The legislative clerk called the roll.
