2/13/17: Sessions Confirmed as U.S. Attorney General

The U.S. Senate confirmed Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama as U.S. Attorney General by a vote of 52-47. Sessions voted “present” on his nomination, while Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia was the lone Democrat to cross the aisle to vote for Sessions. Sessions was elected U.S. Senator from Alabama in 1996 after serving two years as the state’s attorney general. Sessions was among the first in Congress to support candidate Donald Trump and served as an advisor in Trump’s successful presidential campaign. Sessions, who graduated from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, and the University of Alabama Law School, was the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee. He was also a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
