Citing weather issues, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) postponed a scheduled vote late Monday afternoon on the nomination of Patricia Millett to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

“This announcement to all senators,” he said on the Senate floor. “Because of the myriad of problems with the weather, senators are stranded even from last night trying to get here. So we’re going to have to put off the votes this afternoon. We are going to have no votes this afternoon. And so I would ask and we’ll have these votes in the morning.

The Millett confirmation vote is now expected Tuesday morning.
