CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The U.S. Senate has confirmed Wyoming First Lady Nancy Freudenthal as a federal judge for the District of Wyoming.

Governor Dave Freudenthal submitted his wife's name to President Barack Obama last year, along with two other candidates, for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court in Cheyenne. Nancy Freudenthal will replace Judge Clarence Brimmer, who's retiring.

Nancy Freudenthal is a lawyer in private practice in Cheyenne with the law firm of Davis and Cannon. The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on her nomination January.

Elly Pickett, a spokeswoman for U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, says Enzi and Sen. John Barrasso called Freudenthal to congratulate her after the Senate vote on Wednesday.

I'm not saying that she

I'm not saying that she isn't qualified, but I don't care for political dynasties.

Nothing shady here.

I am sure out of all the lawyers and judges in this district she was the only one qualified for this job.Way to go Gov. Dave!!I also think Michelle Obama would be a great supreme court justice.What is this country coming to?I think I know why the Governor wouldn't let Wyoming join the lawsuit against healthcare.A proud day in America.
