On News Reports That Eric Holder, Jr. Will Be Nominated To Be Attorney General By President-Elect Barack Obama

“The nomination of an attorney general is a President’s to make. The next Attorney General will confront many continuing challenges, and can do much to restore our commitment to the rule of law and public confidence in federal law enforcement.  I have known Eric Holder for many years.  He has served as a prosecutor, judge and high ranking law enforcement official.  He would make an outstanding nominee, and should have the support of Senators from both sides of the aisle if President-elect Obama were to choose him for this critical position.”
