 Chair Keever’s statement on Loretta Lynch
Raleigh, NC – Today NCDP Chairwoman Patsy Keever responded to the U.S. Senate confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. Attorney General. Mrs. Lynch, a Greensboro native, has had her nomination blocked by Republican Senators for 166 days. Her nomination was held up as political leverage. Her confirmation finally came after some Senate members agreed to vote on the Human Trafficking Bill. 
 
I am pleased that the U.S. Senate has finally confirmed Loretta Lynch as the U.S. Attorney General. She will be the first African American woman to hold this post. It is regrettable that Sen. Burr and Sen. Tillis were part of the process that held up the confirmation of their fellow North Carolinian for so long. Mrs. Lynch is extremely qualified to carry out the important and crucial duties of Attorney General and will no doubt make our state and nation proud.”
