Cadish withdraws as federal judicial nominee

And thus a victory for Senator Dean Heller, who opposed her because of a gun control answer during a campaign, over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who promoted her.

Elissa Cadish's withdrawal letter (attached here), surely solicited by Reid, mentions the need to fill the slot. But this is very simple: Heller blocked her and could never move off that position. He could never explain allowing her to go through if he flip-flopped.

Heller can change his positions on immigration, but on Cadish: Impossible.
