Loretta Lynch makes history
The U.S. Senate has made history by confirming Loretta Lynch the country’s first black female Attorney General.
Lynch was confirmed by a 56-43 vote after the process was held up for five months over partisan wrangling over sex trafficking bill.
It should be noted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) voted for Lynch.
She will replace Eric Holder, who has had a contentious relationship with Republicans.
