It was announced last week (Mississippi Today) that President Trump nominated Mike Hurst to serve as Southern District U.S. Attorney and Chad Lamar to fill the slot in the Northern District.

My Take:

These seem like reasonable picks.

It took President Obama years to fill these slots. I’m guessing that’s more a reflection on Obama being a Democrat and our Senators and Governor being Republicans than Trump having his act together. Trump doesn’t seem like the kind of president who would care who the U.S. Attorneys are in Mississippi.
