Warner & Kaine Now Accepting Applications for U.S. Attorneys for Eastern and Western District of Virginia

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine are now accepting applications for the positions of U.S. Attorney for the Eastern and Western District of Virginia to replace current officeholders. After receipt of applications, the Senators will select from the list of qualified attorneys to recommend for the nomination. The White House will then nominate individuals to be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The nominations are subject to confirmation by the full Senate.

“U.S. Attorneys play an integral role in protecting a geographically diverse region and addressing a wide range of issues – whether it be human trafficking, narcotics, gang violence, white collar crime, or public corruption,” said the Senators. “As we begin the transition process for these key positions in Virginia’s two districts, we look forward to reviewing qualified candidates and selecting the right individuals.”

Interested applicants should visit Senator Warner’s website for application instructions. The application period will close Monday, December 21, 2020.
