Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) is one step closer to becoming the 84th Attorney General of the United States. Today, the Senate voted 52 to 47 to invoke cloture and end the debate on his confirmation. A 30-hour discussion period will follow, after which the final vote is expected Wednesday night.
This is great news for Concerned Women for America (CWA); we feel Sen. Jeff Sessions is just the type of leader the Department of Justice needs, especially after eight years of politicization under the Obama Administration and former Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.
Please keep Sen. Sessions and the Senate in your prayers as they continue to consider his nomination.
I also ask you to pray for Sen. Sessions’ replacement. Once Sen. Sessions is confirmed and sworn in (probably on Thursday), Alabama Governor Robert J. Bentley (R) will appoint a replacement to his Senate seat. With the increase in irrational partisanship in Washington, let us pray Sen. Sessions’ replacement is as dedicated to the constitutional principles that guard our liberty as he was.
Sen. Session’s 20 years of service will be a hard act to follow, but we are praying that God will raise a man or woman “for such a time as this.”
More to come, so stay tuned.
