The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to move the nomination of Loretta Lynch, President Barack Obama's pick to be the next attorney general, NBC News reported. Three Republicans -- Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona -- joined with Democrats to vote in favor of Lynch's nomination. Some conservatives see a vote for Lynch as a vote in favor of Obama's executive actions on immigration. Lynch's nomination now heads to the full Senate for a vote, where she is expected to be confirmed. If confirmed, she would be the first African-American woman to hold the job. It's unclear when a final vote will occur.
