WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats are struggling to push a pair of President Barack Obama's nominations through the Senate. And showdown votes on both seem likely.
Democrats want to halt Republican delaying tactics against congressman Melvin Watt. Obama wants the North Carolina Democrat to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees government-owned mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
They're also trying to end a GOP blockade against Patricia Millett, whom Obama has picked for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. That is one of the country's most powerful courts, and Republicans want to stop Obama from tilting its membership toward Democrats.
The Millett clash echoes last summer's battle, when Democrats threatened to rewrite the chamber's rules to make it harder for Republicans to block presidential appointments.
