Jeff Sessions Confirmed as U.S. Attorney General

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions was confirmed last night as U.S. Attorney General, NBC News reports. The final vote was 52-47, straight across party lines with the exception of Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, who voted in favor. This was the Sessions' second attempt at a Senate confirmation. His first attempt, in 1986, was for a federal judgeship, which failed after he was accused of racial insensitivity.
