Who Will Replace U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder?

The Hill reports “Five candidates to replace Holder. Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement Thursday that he’s stepping down after six years heading the Justice Department set tongues wagging in Washington about who might succeed him.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday the White House is already evaluating candidates to replace Holder and that the selection would be a “high priority.” He said the Senate should be prepared to act promptly.

President Obama has plenty of past and present insiders to choose from, but could also enlist a high-profile rising star.

The timing of the president’s nomination will play a critical role in the confirmation process. If Obama picks a more controversial nominee, Senate Democrats might try to ram it through in the lame-duck session after the election — particularly if Republicans win the majority in November.

Here are five people who might be willing to take the plunge.”

1.) Don Verrilli
2.) Janet Napolitano
3.) Kamala Harris
4.) Preet Bharara
5.) Tony West
