Last week president trump nominated 10 more judges to lower courts, counting Judge Thapar from last month that is 11 now. It has also been said we can expect monthly updates. With close to 110 vacancies left to fill can Trump fill all by the mid term

This is NOT to say it will matter, especially as the republicans are facing a very favorable map in 2018. It's just a curious thought I had.

If he manages 10 nominees a month he should fill most of the vacancies in the next twelve months well before the mid term. But then there is the democrat obstruction he will have to overcome in the senate. Thanks to the Reid rule they can't stop him, but they can slow him down by extending the debate to the maximum limit.

And it just occurred to me judge Thapar was nominated TWO months ago. Man time flys. But the principle stands.
