WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Attorney General Sessions’ announcement of resignation, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

“We wish Jeff Sessions well in his future endeavors and thank him for his long record of public service to our country. The choice of the next attorney general is an important one, and we know the White House will consider it carefully.
