Senate Confirms Lynch as Atty. General

On April 23, by a 56-43 vote, the United States Senate confirmed Loretta Lynch as the nation’s next Attorney General, to replace the outgoing Eric Holder.

Lynch was nominated by President Obama in November, but the nomination was delayed by what is largely attributed to political wrangling.

A recent rare compromise, regarding a bill to curb human trafficking, was resolved earlier this week by a unanimous Senate vote of 99-0. Discord over that bill’s language was linked to Lynch’s nomination, but once that bill cleared the hurdle, her nomination was all but secured.

Lynch will be the first African-American woman Attorney General of the United States.
