Paulsen Statement on Nomination of Judge Erica H. MacDonald as U.S. Attorney for Minnesota

Congressman Erik Paulsen (MN-03)today issued the following statement after the White House announced the nomination of Judge Erica H. MacDonald to serve as the United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota:

“Judge MacDonald is a widely-respected jurist, an experienced federal prosecutor and a fine lawyer in both the public and private sectors,”said Congressman Paulsen. “She’s earned a reputation on the bench not just of fairness and impartiality, but of extensive knowledge of the law. As a federal prosecutor she put behind bars some of Minnesota’s worst offenders. She fought sex trafficking, co-chairing Minnesota’s Human Trafficking Task Force, cracked down on illegal guns and got drugs off our streets. Her trial experience, management skills, discretion and temperament will make her an outstanding U.S. Attorney. I congratulate her on her nomination and I look forward to her confirmation.”
