Washington, D.C. – Penny Nance, CEO & President of Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, made the following comments on the news that President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (R) to serve as the 84th U.S. Attorney General:
Sen. Sessions has been a champion for the conservative principles that are the foundation of liberty and freedom. Both his academic preparation and his stellar career as a U.S. Attorney and as a senator testify of an honest, competent man with a heart towards serving his fellow countrymen, even through much personal sacrifice.
We commend President-elect Trump for his selection of such a strong candidate. The choice speaks very highly of his commitment to conservative principles.
The hundreds of thousands of members of Concerned Women for America (CWA) around the country will urge senators to move quickly in the new year to confirm Sen. Sessions as the next attorney general, so that we may start rectifying many of the asphyxiating policies pursued by Attorney General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.
The attacks on religious freedom and freedom of conscience in general, for example, must be at the top of the list.
