LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The U.S. Senate has confirmed Kentucky native Kelly Knight Craft as the next ambassador to Canada.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the confirmation on Thursday. Craft was previously a U.S. delegate to the United Nations. She has also been a prominent Republican donor and fundraiser.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative shows Canada is the second largest goods trading partner with the United States with $544 billion in total goods trade between the two countries in 2016.

McConnell said in a news release that Craft, who is from Glasgow, will continue the “long history of friendship” between the United States and Canada.
