In May of 2011, Georgia’s Senators affirmed their “all nominees deserved and up or down vote” position.

“As I said repeatedly during the years President Bush was in office, I believe every president deserves an up-or-down vote on their judicial nominees.  In addition, the U.S. Constitution says it is the Senate’s responsibility to give ‘advice and consent’ to the president’s judicial nominees, and the way to comply with the Constitution is to have an up-or-down vote on these nominees.” – Senator Isakson

Fast forward to May of 2012, where both Senators are blocking confirmation of Jill Pryor to the 11th Circuit.
