Senator Flake: John Kerry Qualified to Serve as Secretary of State

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

United States Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today announced that, after hearing Secretary of State nominee John Kerry testify before the Committee, he believes that Senator Kerry is well-qualified to serve as Secretary of State, and Senator Flake intends to vote in favor of his nomination.

"The Senate has an obligation to ensure that presidential nominees are competent, qualified, and free of hindrances that would affect their ability to serve. But I believe that once a nominee passes those tests, presidents, whether Democrat or Republican, ought to have the ability to select members of their administrations," said Flake. "While I expect to disagree with the Obama Administration over how best to carry out U.S. interests abroad, Senator Kerry is clearly well-qualified to serve as Secretary of State. I look forward to working with him in that capacity."
