-- Minutes before noon today, the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed Reginald “Reggie” Lloyd to serve as U.S. Attorney for South Carolina. U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement following the confirmation vote.
“With the Senate’s approval of Reggie Lloyd’s nomination, South Carolina will now have a permanent U.S. Attorney. The role of the U.S. Attorney is to vigorously enforce the laws of the land and protect our nation from foreign and domestic threats.
“Reggie possesses both the character and legal experience necessary for this most important job. His experience as a judge and private attorney make him uniquely qualified. All South Carolinians should take pride in the fact we have someone of tremendous integrity, character, and experience serving in this position. I look forward to Reggie being sworn in and appreciate him for agreeing to serve our nation at this important time.
“I also appreciate Majority Leader Bill Frist’s effort today to have Reggie confirmed on the last day before the President’s Day recess. Senator Frist went the extra mile to ensure his nomination would be approved.”
