WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today celebrated the Senate Judiciary Committee’s approval of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States, saying he is an outstanding American who will serve the country admirably.
“Jeff Sessions is an outstanding American who for many years has fought tirelessly to advance conservative principles,” Roby said. “He is a man of the highest character and integrity who has a deep understanding of the rule of law. There is no one more qualified to lead our country as Attorney General, and I’m confident that he will serve the American people admirably.
“Our country needs Jeff Sessions’ leadership as Attorney General, and I urge the full Senate to confirm his nomination without delay.”
