Washington, D.C. – Moments ago, the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States 52-47.

“Congratulations to newly confirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions on behalf of the nearly half a million members of Concerned Women for America. The President picked the best person for the job, and I am pleased to see the Senate confirm him.
“Our grassroots worked tirelessly to ensure the American people have an Attorney General who will enforce the law with fairness and equity for every American.
