Rep. John Lewis On Confirmation of Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General
"I am glad that the U.S. Senate decided to finally vote on the nomination of Loretta Lynch. It should have happened long before now, but I am very pleased that she was confirmed.
"I look forward to working with the first African American woman to serve as the U.S. Attorney General. She is highly qualified, deserving of this appointment, and I expect that she will make a lasting contribution through her work that furthers the cause of justice and democracy in America."
