Senate confirms McElwee as Maine’s top federal prosecutor
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - The U.S. Senate has confirmed federal prosecutor Darcie McElwee to serve as U.S. attorney for Maine.
Republican Sen. Susan Collins, who shares a hometown of Caribou with McElwee, spoke in support on the Senate floor.
The nomination was confirmed on a voice vote Tuesday evening.
McElwee takes a job formerly held by Halsey Frank, a Trump appointee.
Frank stepped aside to make way for appointments by the Biden administration.
