WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement on the Senate’s vote to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. Attorney General.

“The best thing for the country is to have a new Attorney General and close the book on Eric Holder,” said Graham. “I also believe presidents should have latitude in picking nominees for their Cabinet, and Ms. Lynch is well-qualified for the job. My goal is to have a Republican president nominate the next Attorney General so we will not be forced to choose between Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.”
