The Senate Judiciary Committee continues to chip away at confirming U.S. Attorneys around the country.

On Thursday, the commmittee gave the nod to Stephen Wiggington for the Southern District of Illinois and Edward L. Stanton III for the Western District of Tennessee.

To date, the panel has approved 59 U.S. Attorney nominees and the Senate has confirmed 57 of those, according to the website Main Justice, which closely follows the process.
