President-elect Donald Trump has chosen U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.

Sessions, who sits on the Judiciary Committee, has previously served as a U.S. attorney and Alabama attorney general.

He is apt to face opposition for his civil rights record. When President Reagan nominated him for a federal judgeship in 1986, a Republican-controlled Judiciary Committee rejected him because of his history on race. According to testimony before the committee, he had referred to civil-rights groups as “un-American” and “Communist-inspired.”
