Comments On Senator Specter’s Decision To Support Eric Holder’s Nomination

“I am glad that Senator Specter has resolved his concerns and will support Eric Holder’s nomination to be the next Attorney General.  He joins the dozens of organizations and individuals across the political spectrum that for more than two months have praised the qualifications, integrity, and independence of this nominee.  Tomorrow the Committee will move forward to report this historic nomination to the Senate, and I hope the Senate will debate and vote on Mr. Holder’s nomination without further delay.”
