Rep. Hanes urges Tillis and Burr to resist party pressure

On Tuesday, March 3, Rep. Edward Hanes Jr. commented on the decision of North Carolina U.S. Sens. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr not to support the nomination of Greensboro native Loretta Lynch for U.S. attorney general.

Needless to say I was disappointed that our Congressional representatives chose not to publicly support Ms. Lynch.  She has demonstrated her qualifications to be second to none.  She is a North Carolinian who has achieved at the highest levels and will continue to represent this State well.  It is sad when our body politic is stratified to the point that great people with supreme qualifications become ensnared and potentially undone.  It is my hope that Senator Tillis and Senator Burr going forward will resist party pressure when it comes to supporting the appointment of exceptionally qualified North Carolinians and people of character/excellence more generally.”

Rep. Edward Hanes Jr, N.C. District 72
