Wendy Vitter has been confirmed to be a judge for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana by a 52-45 U.S. Senate vote.

Two of those "Yes" votes - Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy - have offered their congratulations to her.

“Congratulations to Wendy on being confirmed by the full Senate today,” says Dr. Cassidy. “She is immensely qualified to serve, and I wish her success in upholding the Constitution on behalf of the good people of the Eastern District.”

“Wendy is whip smart and articulate," says Senator Kennedy. "She understands and appreciates the rule of law. She will serve the state of Louisiana well.”

Wendy Vitter is the wife of former U.S. Senator David Vitter.
