The full U.S. Senate confirmed State Sen. Doug Overbey as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee last night, Knoxnews reports. Overbey said he was grateful to Sen. Lamar Alexander and Sen. Bob Corker for recommending him to President Donald Trump, and was “excited about the opportunity to combine my avocation in public service with my vocation as a lawyer.” The appointment will be official once President Trump signs Overbey’s commission documents, which Overbey said he expects should happen by the end of the month.
