FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Judicial Nominating Commission that could recommend Republican Senate President David Williams for a circuit judgeship in southern Kentucky is set to meet next week in Burkesville.

The meeting, which will be held at 10 a.m. EDT on Oct. 25, was announced Wednesday.

Williams has said he's interested in the position. The appointment ultimately would be made by Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear, who has said he'd consider Williams for the job. Beshear has a record of appointing his Republican foes to higher-paying jobs to get them out of the Senate. He told reporters earlier this month that he believes Williams, a lawyer, is qualified to be a circuit judge.
