Paul Will Filibuster Nomination

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) will filibuster President Obama's nomination of David Barron to fill a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, Business Insider reports.

"According to his office, Paul will take to the Senate floor Wednesday morning to begin an old-fashioned, talking filibuster of Barron's nomination. Paul opposes Barron because of his concerns about legal opinions Barron wrote in support of the use of drones against U.S. citizens."
