MARYVILLE, Tenn., November 6, 2018 — United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after President Trump announced his intent to nominate Tennessean A.B. Culvahouse, Jr., to be Ambassador of the United States of America to the Commonwealth of Australia.

“A.B. Culvahouse is an exceptionally fine nominee for Ambassador to Australia. His experience as counsel to President Reagan and President Trump and former Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker, and his leadership of one of the world’s major law firms equip him to represent our country well. And, having once lived with our family in Australia for six months, I can also say I am envious.”
