Casey Statement on Attorney General Holder

Washington, DC- Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on Attorney General Eric Holder’s plans to retire:

"I want to commend Attorney General Eric Holder for his important work and many accomplishments. Attorney General Holder has worked to advance democracy and the fair administration of justice by enforcing federal voting and civil rights laws, supporting equality for LGBT Americans, and promoting common sense steps to address the over-incarceration of nonviolent offenders and disparities in our criminal justice system. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his public service. I look forward to working with the Administration and my Senate colleagues to confirm a replacement that will continue these important efforts. I also want to thank Attorney General Holder for his years as a distinguished federal prosecutor enforcing our laws and protecting our nation.”
