Sen. Grassley signals green light on Sessions

(AP) -

Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley says he is confident his panel would approve the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general.
   Sessions would still face a vote by the full Senate, but a committee endorsement would be a critical first step.
   Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, says Sessions is a respected colleague who "has worked across the aisle on major legislation."
   Grassley added that as a former U.S. attorney, Sessions has the right background.
