Loretta Lynch was confirmed Thursday as U.S. attorney general. The Senate approved Lynch’s nomination with a vote of 56 to 43. The 56-43 vote makes Lynch the first African-American woman attorney general in U.S. history.

President Barack Obama nominated Lynch as the successor to Eric Holder in November. After a major delay of 167 days, the Senate finally confirmed Lynch for the post.

Congrats to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch!
