dc.description.abstractUnited States Attorneys are some of the most important actors in the American justice system. While strong research does exist about US Attorneys, it focuses primarily on their behavior in office, once they are already past the nomination process. The literature discusses the nomination process for US Attorneys, but prior to this research, no data existed on US Attorney short lists. Short lists are immensely important in understanding who gets chosen for a Presidentially-appointed and Senate-confirmed post and why they were seen as the best choice. This research collected data on 10 randomly selected judicial districts' US Attorney short lists. Various independent variables were used to compare trends across time and space and measure how these variables influenced the selection process.en_US
