Johnny Isakson will vote ‘no’ on Loretta Lynch for A.G. | Political Insider blog

WASHINGTON — Georgia Republican U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson will vote against confirming Loretta Lynch for Attorney General.

Lynch’s nomination is finally expected to hit the floor in the coming days, after Senate leaders announced an agreement this morning on a human trafficking bill.

Isakson’s delegation mate, Sen. David Perdue, also opposes Lynch and voted against her nomination in committee in February. It appears that Lynch, a federal prosecutor in New York who would be the first black female attorney general, will have barely enough GOP votes to squeak by to confirmation.
