U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia are accepting applications for the position of U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Interested applicants should visit Warner’s website for application instructions. The application period will close Nov, 17, 2017.

The confirmed nominee will succeed Dana Boente, who resigned Oct. 26 effective upon the confirmation of a successor.

After receipt of applications, the senators will select from the list of qualified attorneys to recommend for President Trump’s nomination. The White House will then nominate individuals to be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The nominations are subject to confirmation by the full Senate.

The senators said they are grateful for Boente’s public service, and look forward to reviewing qualified candidates and selecting the right individual for this role.

The Virginia Bar Association does not consider or recommend individuals for U.S. attorney.
