What of the Fourth Circuit in all this?

Wondering what will become of the nominations of Haynes and Boyle, I see here in the NY Times where it says: "Democratic officials said an unwritten aspect of the pact was that two nominees not named in the deal - Brett M. Kavanaugh and William J. Haynes - would not be confirmed and would be turned aside either at the committee level or on the floor."

This statement, if true, would seem to indicate that the run of Mr. Haynes to succeed Judge Widener will soon be at an end.

I was under the impression that Judge Boyle also was among the seven in the current group, apparently that is not so.
