Sen. Perdue Supports Sen. Sessions for Attorney General

Today, President-Elect Donald Trump nominated Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to the position of Attorney General. Sessions has been a supporter of Trump from the start of his campaign, and has been credited by many as a major influence on Trump’s positions on immigration. While the reaction on social media to the nomination has been mixed, Georgia’s junior Senator David Perdue, who is a member of the Senate Juciciary Committee praised Sessions in a statement:

Jeff’s extensive legal career and experience make him a natural fit to lead our nation’s Justice Department. His knowledge and dedication to our judicial system have been evident during my work with him on the Senate Judiciary Committee. I look forward to continue working with Jeff to make our country safer for all Americans.

Perdue, of course, was also an early and energetic supporter of Trump’s candidacy.
