Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II's Statement Regarding the U.S. Senate 56-43 Vote Confirming NC Native Daughter Loretta Lynch as Top Law Enforcement Official in the Nation
DURHAM, NC: Today, after more than 165 days since she was nominated, the Senate brought U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch's confirmation as the next U.S. Attorney General to the floor for a vote. In a 56-43 vote, the Senate confirmed Lynch to be the next U.S. Attorney General and first ever African American woman to serve in this role.

Durham, North Carolina (CNN)President Obama's nomination of Loretta Lynch to become the country's first African-American woman attorney general is a historic pick. Her confirmation, however, is now taking on new historical relevance as her wait for a confirmation vote by the full Senate drags into its sixth month.
The period between the Senate Judiciary Committee's vote to confirm and the full Senate vote -- which in Lynch's case has not been scheduled -- has lasted longer for her than for any attorney general nominee in recent history. By the time the Senate returns from Easter recess on Monday, it'll have been longer than the eight previous nominees for the job -- combined.
