Brooklyn, NY

Why

In November 2014, President Barack Obama nominated Loretta Elizabeth Lynch for U.S. Attorney General, succeeding Eric Holder. If the Senate confirms her, she will be the first African American woman in this position and the second woman, after Janet Reno, to hold this office. As the current U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Lynch oversees federal prosecutions in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Long Island. She has held this office twice, under two presidents. Unafraid to take on big cases, including political corruption, will she now take on the nation’s legal challenges in 2015? We’ll see.
