Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) released the following statement regarding the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) Secretary nominee, Rear Admiral Ronny L. Jackson:

“I expect Adm. Jackson to face the same amount of scrutiny from the Senate as that of any other nominee for a cabinet position. As I said from the beginning, any nominee will have to prove that they are the right person for the job. I expect the next VA Secretary to do what Dr. Shulkin failed to do— that is, cleaning out the senior leadership that created a culture of bureaucratic incompetence at the VA. The Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee has an obligation to fully vet Admiral Jackson’s military record as part of the confirmation process and millions of veterans and I will follow this process closely.”
