Alexander: Senate Confirms Tennesseans Mike Dunavant and Don Cochran to Serve as United States Attorneys

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 14, 2017 — U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after the Senate confirmed Mike Dunavant to serve as the United States Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee and Don Cochran to serve as the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee:

On Dunavant: “Senator Corker and I recommended Mike because he is a well-qualified and dedicated prosecutor who will serve West Tennesseans with integrity. I am glad the Senate voted to confirm him to be the United States Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee.”

On Cochran: “I’m glad the Senate confirmed Don today -- he has long served his community and his country as an Assistant United States Attorney, Deputy District Attorney, and Major in the United States Army. It is appropriate that he will now serve here in the Middle District – he is a Nashville native and received both his undergraduate and law degrees from Vanderbilt University.”
