WASHINGTON, D.C. – After being recommended to the White House by Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson, President Biden nominated Gregory Haanstad to be U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, and Sopen Shah to be U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin. Both Haanstad and Shah were recommended to the Senators by the bipartisan Wisconsin Federal Nominating Commission that has been established for nominations during the 117th Congress.
“The bipartisan Wisconsin Federal Nominating Commission has delivered highly qualified nominees and I was proud to join Senator Johnson in recommending Gregory Haanstad and Sopen Shah for U.S. Attorney positions in Wisconsin,” said Senator Baldwin. “I am thankful that President Biden has once again followed our recommendations, and those of the Wisconsin Federal Nominating Commission, with these nominations. These Wisconsin nominees have the experience and qualifications necessary to serve as outstanding U.S. Attorneys and I am hopeful that the Senate will now consider and confirm these nominations with the support of both Wisconsin Senators, and without undue delay.” ###
