Here’s some good news: Texas’ two U.S. senators, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, are moving quickly to fill judicial vacancies, including the one in Galveston.

Judge Gregg Costa, who has held that post, is moving up a step to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Although he’s still handling cases in Galveston during the transitional period, he’s already been sworn in as an appellate judge.

Cornyn and Cruz established a bipartisan panel to help identify the most qualified candidates. 

They’ve put the word out, encouraging qualified candidates to apply. The notable thing is the application deadline: Aug. 1. The senators are moving.
