WASHINGTON — U.S. Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin announced on Friday their agreement to recommend to the White House four Wisconsinites for consideration to fill the open seat on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

 The candidates, Michael Aprahamian, Gordon Giampietro, Kevin Martens and Richard Sankovitz, were recommended by a bipartisan federal nominating commission that the Wisconsin senators established in April 2013 to move federal nominations forward, including nominations to vacant federal judgeships in Wisconsin.

 The full text of the Wisconsin senators’ letter of recommendation to the White House is below.
