Leaders of several civil rights groups laid out their recommendations on Tuesday for the type of attorney general President-elect Joe Biden should nominate to head the Justice Department.
The virtual conclave between seven civil rights leaders and Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), an incoming senior adviser to the president, comes as the president-elect continues to fill out his government.
Biden introduced members of his health team earlier on Tuesday, and POLITICO reported that he intends to nominate Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development and former Gov. Tom Vilsack of Iowa to run the Department of Agriculture.
