WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after he voted to confirm President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL):
“For the last two years, I had the privilege of working alongside Senator Sessions on critical judicial and legal issues facing our country.
His knowledge and dedication to upholding our Constitution and the rule of law have been evident throughout his many years of public service. Senator Sessions’ extensive legal career as United States Attorney and state Attorney General, coupled with his experience as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, make him a natural fit to lead our nation’s Justice Department. I was proud to vote to confirm Senator Sessions as our new Attorney General and I look forward to working with him to make our country safer for all Americans.”
