NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - President Donald Trump has nominated state Sen. Doug Overbey as U.S. attorney for Tennessee’s eastern district.

The White House announced Overbey’s nomination Friday. The nomination must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Overbey is a three-term Republican state senator and co-founded the Robertson Overbey law firm in Knoxville in 1982.

Tennessee Senate Speaker Randy McNally says Overbey has been a valuable and respected member of the General Assembly, and as a U.S. attorney will “enforce the law with much skill and expertise.”
