LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The only Democrat left in Kentucky's congressional delegation, John Yarmuth is expected to play a big role in recommending nominations for two federal judgeships.
The president normally consults with the senior senator of his party before making a nomination, but both of Kentucky's U.S. senators are Republicans.
Kentucky's other Democratic congressman, Ben Chandler, lost his re-election bid last week to Republican Andy Barr.
Sen. Mitch McConnell's press secretary says the senator will "take an active role" in reviewing any nominations.
