Obama Raises Concerns With Nominee for Surgeon General

U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) today released the following statement on the nomination of Dr. James Holsinger for Surgeon General:

"America's top doctor should be a doctor for all Americans, and so I have serious reservations about nominating someone who would inject his own anti-gay ideology into critical decisions about the health and well-being of our nation. As with other nominees, I will listen to the testimony of Dr. James Holsinger, but this Administration must know that the United States Surgeon General's office is no place for bigotry or ideology that would trump sound science and good judgment."
