The U.S. Senate on Thursday unanimously confirmed Thomas Walker for U.S. Attorney in Raleigh, N.C., according to WRAL.
Three other U.S. Attorneys were also confirmed, according to the website Main Justice: George Beck for the Middle District of Alabama; Felicia Adams for the Northern District of Mississippi; and Ronald Sharpe for the Virgin Islands.
Walker, who was in private practice, and was previsously an assistant U.S. Attorney and an assistant district attorney in Mecklenburg County, N.C., replaces Bush-appointee George Holding who announced earlier this month that he will step down on July 8.
Holding stayed in office to oversee the criminal investigation into ex-Sen. John Edwards, who was recently indicted for alleged campaign fund irregularities.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday President Obama nominated Gregory Davis for the U.S. Attorney spot in Southern District of Mississippi.
He has been a member of the law firm Davis, Goss & Williams, PLLC since 1989. From 1987 to 1989, he was an associate attorney for the law firm Stamps & Stamps.
