PRICE STATEMENT ON LORETTA LYNCH CONFIRMATION
Washington, DC– Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement on the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, a North Carolina native, as U.S. Attorney General.
“I congratulate Loretta Lynch on her historic confirmation as the first female African-American U.S. Attorney General. Today’s bipartisan vote was a validation of Ms. Lynch’s sterling qualifications and marks the end of politicized attempts by Senate Republican leadership to stand in the way of her nomination.
“I wish Ms. Lynch the very best as she prepares to take office. The patience, thoughtfulness, and good nature she demonstrated throughout her unnecessarily long nomination process will serve her well as she takes the helm at the Department of Justice.”
