WASHINGTON, D.C. — Republican U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska released the following statement Friday after learning President Donald Trump has nominated Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly, a native of Lexington, Neb., to serve as U.S. Attorney for the District of Nebraska:
“Joe Kelly is a highly-respected prosecutor who will put the safety of Nebraska’s families and communities first. It was my honor to recommend Joe to serve the people of our state in this capacity. His decades of experience, steady leadership, and top-notch legal skills will make him an incredibly effective U.S. Attorney for the District of Nebraska.”
Republican U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had this reaction about the White House’s announcement this morning of Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly’s nomination to serve as U.S. Attorney for Nebraska.
“Joe Kelly is a proven public servant with the humility and honesty that Nebraskans demand and respect. I look forward to working with Joe as he moves through the Judiciary Committee toward confirmation.”
