Committee approves US attorney nominee for New Hampshire

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A Senate committee has approved Emily Gray Rice to serve as U.S. Attorney for New Hampshire.

Rice, who was nominated by President Barak Obama, was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. She would need to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte have said they would support Rice.

Shaheen said she recommended Rice because of her background as a professor at the University of New Hampshire Law School, her work as a trial lawyer and her career in the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office. Ayotte said she has a long history of leadership.

Rice would replace acting U.S. Attorney Donald Feith.
