After a five month delay, the U.S. Senate has finally confirmed Loretta E. Lynch as attorney general. The 56-43 vote makes Lynch the first Black woman to serve as attorney general in U.S. history. The daughter of a North Carolina civil rights leader assumes the role previously held by Eric H. Holder Jr. and has plans to shift the tone of the Justice department. Some of the things high on Lynch's priorities include examining policing practices and improving relations between the Justice Department and Congress.
