Holder Should be Confirmed as Next Attorney General
This week, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the nomination of Eric Holder for U.S. Attorney General. We strongly support his nomination and urge his swift confirmation.
Throughout his distinguished career, Holder has consistently shown his commitment to protecting the legal rights of all Americans and established himself as an advocate for women. He has been outspoken on gender equality issues, worked to combat domestic violence, and taken a strong stand to ensure women have equal access to education and health care.
He is well-respected and has been selected by both Democrats and Republicans to serve in different posts. Holder was unanimously confirmed by the Senate for the position of Deputy Attorney General in 1997, and a number of Republican senators have recently expressed their support for Holder during these proceedings.
This is an important time in our nation’s history and it is crucial that we have the right leadership as we move forward. Holder has the commitment and experience necessary to lead the Department of Justice and should be swiftly confirmed.
