Democrat Senator Backs Sessions for AG

Reading Time: 1 minute

By USDR.

USDR received the following statement from President-elect Trump’s transition team:

Sen. Jeff Sessions’s (R-Ala.) bid to become the next attorney general has the backing of a Democratic senator.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) says he’s supporting President-elect Donald Trump’s pick of Sessions, journalist Salena Zito tweeted Friday  afternoon.

Manchin’s support is a big boost to Sessions’s chances. He needs a simple majority in the Senate to be confirmed, and the GOP is expected to control 52 seats in the chamber after next month’s Louisiana runoff  elections.

Republicans have largely rushed to back their colleague, and CNN reported that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has pledged to help push through his nomination.
