Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Gregory W. Meeks (D-NY) released the following statement today after President Obama nominated Senator John Kerry for Secretary of State:

"I offer my heartfelt congratulations to Senator John Kerry on his nomination to be Secretary of State. From the jungles of Vietnam to the hallways of the United States Senate, John Kerry has always put country first. As a well-respected chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he has represented our nation impeccably, both at home and abroad. He is the epitome of a diplomat, and will bring to Foggy Bottom a formidable intellect and considerable gravitas.

"President Obama could not have made a finer choice to lead the State Department. Senator Kerry and I have enjoyed a close working relationship over the years, and I look forward to continuing that in his new role upon confirmation."
