As expected, President Bush nominated Federal Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The 55-year-old Alito is a former federal prosecutor who has served 15 years as a federal appeals court judge. He's considered a conservative with extensive judicial experience.
Congressman Randy Neugebauer was in Lubbock Monday and he had this to say about Samuel Alito nomination.
"When you look at his record, you're certainly going to make the Conservatives very happy. I think he's a great choice and I look forward to his quick confirmation," said Neugebauer.
President Bush says he hopes to have a Senate confirmation vote by the end of the year.
