Today, U.S. Senators Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued a joint statement after the Senate confirmed Deirdre M. Daly to serve as U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut. Daly will serve a four-year term.

“While serving as acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut over the past year, Deirdre Daly has proved that she is more than qualified for the job. She has spent decades in the public and private sector ensuring that justice is served, and we have no doubt she’ll continue to do so in this position. We are proud that this firm and fair prosecutor will continue to serve the people of Connecticut.”
