Markey Statement on John Kerry Nomination for Secretary of State

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), dean of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation, released the following statement after President Obama announced his nomination of Massachusetts Senator John Kerry for Secretary of State.

"John Kerry is one of America's great statesmen and is supremely qualified to serve as Secretary of State. He is the quintessential diplomat, serving on critical missions around the world during his time on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. America will be greatly served here at home and abroad when he is confirmed to serve as our envoy to the world. I have absolute confidence that Secretary Kerry will be just as committed to action on climate change as Senator Kerry, and is the most knowledgeable, passionate person to break the international logjams on this existential threat. I look forward to his confirmation and wish him all the best."
