Education Secretary Arne Duncan listens as President Barack Obama speaks in...
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is simultaneously naming three nominees to the understaffed federal appeals court in Washington, setting up an aggressive push against Senate Republicans who are trying to keep him from naming any more judges to the influential circuit.

A White House official said late Monday that Obama planned to announce his nomination of Patricia Ann Millett, Cornelia Pillard and Robert Leon Wilkins on Tuesday in the Rose Garden, a joint announcement that is part of an aggressive new push in a years-long partisan fight to make his imprint on the court. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the individual was not authorized to discuss the nominees on the record ahead of the announcement.
