NAAG Supports Holder for U.S. Attorney General

U.S. Attorney General

NAAG sent a letter to the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary Jan. 14 supporting the nomination of Eric H. Holder, Jr. as U.S. Attorney General. Holder was confirmed Feb. 2.

“As our nation’s economy suffers, we are deeply concerned that, along with unemployment, crime will rise as well. We fully appreciate that funds are limited, but we know that Mr. Holder will work, as he did as Deputy Attorney General, to provide funding for state and local law enforcement so that we and our colleagues at the state and local level can be effective in our mission,” the NAAG letter states.

Holder is a former judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, former U.S. attorney and former U.S. deputy attorney general. He most recently worked as a senior legal advisor to President Obama.

Holder attended Columbia University and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in American history in 1973. He received his Juris Doctor from Columbia Law School, graduating in 1976.

He is the first African-American to serve as U.S. Attorney General.
