WASHINGTON – President Obama on Friday announced nominees for six U.S. Attorney posts. The nominees included the first woman U.S. Attorney in Hawaii and the son of a state senator in South Dakota.

In Hawaii, the president nominated Florence T. Nakakuni, 57, an assistant U.S. Attorney in Hawaii for the past 24 years, according to the White House. She currently heads the Drug and Organized Crime Section in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

In South Dakata, Brendan Johnson, 34, the son of Sen. Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) was nominated. The Associated Press reported Friday night that the senator, who has served since 1997, said he did not take part in the nomination process. Brendan Johnson is a partner in the law firm of John, Heidepriem, Abdallah and Johnson in Sioux Falls, S.D.

“My father said,” Don’t consult me. Don’t update me. I’m not going to be involved in the process,” AP quoted the son as saying back in January.

The AP quoted the Senator who issued a statement saying” “While I stepped back from his nomination process so it would remain unbiased as a father and a lawyer. I’m very proud of Brendan.”

Other nominees, according to a White House Press release include:
Arizona: Dennis Burke, 46, a senior advisor to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano.

Northern District of Ohio: Steven Dettelbach, 43, a partner with Baker & Hostettler in Cleveland .

Alaska: Karen Loeffler, 52, an Assistant United States Attorney for Alaska for 20 years and current the interim U.S. Attorney.

Southern District of Ohio: Carter M. Stewart, 40, a lawyer at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP in Columbus, Ohio.
