Thune: Sessions Will Be a Consistent Voice for Justice

Says his colleague is a “wise choice” for attorney general

WASHINGTON — Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following statement after the Senate confirmed Jeff Sessions to serve as attorney general:

“Jeff Sessions has been a firm and consistent voice for justice and the Constitution,” said Thune. “I was glad to cast a vote today for my colleague to serve as our nation’s next attorney general. President Trump made a wise choice when he nominated Jeff to this role, and while the people of Alabama are losing a senator who has fought for them day after day, the nation is gaining an ardent defender of ‘we the people.’”
