Jeb Bush backs Loretta Lynch for next attorney general
GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush is urging Senate Republicans to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next attorney general, Politico reports.
Bush endorsed Lynch on Thursday. “I think presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said during a “Politics and Pie” forum New Hampshire. He said the longer they take to confirm Lynch, the longer Eric Holder will remain in the position.
Bush added, “If someone is supportive of the president’s policies, whether you agree with them or not, there should be some deference to the executive. It should not always be partisan.”
