Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Susan Collins joined Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) in introducing Senator Jeff Sessions before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today on his nomination to be Attorney General of the United States.
“Jeff Sessions and I were first sworn into the United States Senate on the very same day. In the 20 years since, we have worked closely on some issues and on opposite sides on others. In fact, it would be fair to say that we have had our share of vigorous debates and policy disagreements,” said Senator Collins during her remarks. “Through these experiences, I have come to know Senator Sessions professionally as a trusted colleague and personally as a good friend. I can vouch confidently for the fact that Jeff Sessions is a person of integrity, a principled leader, and a dedicated public servant.”
