Alexander Statement in Support of Gina McCarthy

Posted on July 18, 2013

WASHINGTON, July 18 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on his vote in support of Gina McCarthy to head the Environmental Protection Agency:

“I voted for Ms. McCarthy because she is clearly qualified for the position, and she’s worked for five Republican governors – including the last Republican nominee for president of the United States. It’s unlikely that any other appointment by President Obama will have better Republican credentials than Ms. McCarthy.”
