WASHINGTON — U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) today supported the confirmation of Holly A. Brady from Fort Wayne to serve as United States District Judge for the Northern District of Indiana. Ms. Brady was confirmed by a 56-42 vote in the Senate. 

“Holly Brady will make an outstanding U.S. district court judge in Indiana. Holly has deep roots in the Fort Wayne community and has had a strong federal practice. Her credentials are impressive and I believe she will become a strong jurist with a commitment to the rule of law. After waiting a year since her nomination, I’m proud that Holly can now serve Hoosiers in Indiana’s Northern District,” said Senator Young. “It’s unfair qualified nominees have been put on hold and used as a political ploy. I’m glad that we are finally able to confirm one of those nominees today.”

“President Trump continued his strong commitment to nominating conservative judges to the bench who respect the rule of law with his selection of Holly Brady for the U.S. District Court for Northern Indiana. I am proud that Judge Brady will finally be able to serve Hoosiers despite historic obstruction from Democrats politicizing our judiciary for partisan gain,” said Senator Braun.

Holly Brady’s nomination was announced exactly a year ago today last April. Last week, Senator Young spoke out with about nominees awaiting a vote during a press stakeout.
