WASHINGTON — The two U.S. Attorneys from Iowa who were recommended by Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) were confirmed by the full Senate on Saturday, the Associated Press reported.

The Senate also confirmed Kenyen Brown for the Southern District of Alabama U.S. Attorney post.

For Iowa, the Senate confirmed Stephanie Rose for U.S. Attorney for Northern Iowa and Nick Klinefeldt for U.S. Attorney for Southern Iowa.

Some 11th hours critics raised issues about Rose’s appointment, questioning her aggressiveness in prosecuting immigrant cases as an assistant U.S. Attorney. The New York Times reported on the matter.

And Klinefeldt got some interesting press when it was revealed that he father is  serving a 10-year prison term for drug trafficking. Main Justice reported on that matter.
