Winmill Confirmed As New Federal Judge

After eight years, 6th District Judge Lynn Winmill of Pocatello will leave the state bench to become Idaho’s newest federal judge.

Months after he was nominated by President Clinton to the position, Winmill was confirmed by the U.S. Senate Friday afternoon. It almost didn’t happen. Idaho senators Larry Craig and Dirk Kempthorne worked throughout the day with GOP leader Sen. Robert Dole to get Winmill confirmed before the Senate took summer adjournment.
