President-elect George W. Bush has finally made his choice for U.S. Attorney General–Senator John Ashcroft! Bush emphasized he expects Ashcroft to run the justice department with unquestionable integrity, and in a fair, firm, and impartial manner. If confirmed, Ashcroft will return to Washington as Bush’s choice as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. He lost his senate seat to the late Governor Mel Carnahan, whose widow, Jean Carnahan, will be serving in his place.
