Iowa Independent: Harkin's U.S. Attorney picks head to Senate for confirmation

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

The recommendations of two Iowa attorneys as the next U.S. Attorneys
for Iowa have been formally approved by the White House, and their
names have been sent to the U.S. Senate for consideration and possible
confirmation. In March, U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) recommended
Stephanie Rose to lead the Northern District and Nick Klinefeldt to
lead the Southern District. Upon learning that his two recommendations
would now begin the formal confirmation process, Harkin said, that
both candidates "are superb attorneys who have the character,
experiences and expertise to vigorously and fairly enforce the law."
Both of Iowa's U.S. Senators -- Harkin and Chuck Grassley (R) -- will
now file paperwork with the Senate Judicial Committee in relation to
the two candidates.
