Griffin's NLRB General Counsel Nomination Advances Out of Senate Committee

NLRBIn spite of some initial doubts about its viability, Richard Griffin's nomination as NLRB General Counsel is looking up.  Today, it advanced out of the Senate Labor Committee on a 13-9 vote (only one Republican voted "yes").  But even Sen. Alexander, who voted "no," stated that he had "no doubt" that Griffin's will be confirmed.  This seems to indicate that Republicans have no plans to filibuster or otherwise block the nomination.  Apparently, there's no timetable on bringing his nomination for a full vote in the Senate.
