SASC Chairman Inhofe Statement on Intent to Nominate Barbara Barrett as Air Force Secretary

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, made the following statement today after President Trump announced he will nominate Barbara Barrett to be the next Secretary of the Air Force:

“I commend President Trump for selecting Barbara Barrett to be the next Secretary of the Air Force. The breadth and depth of her government, business and diplomatic experience—not to mention her background as a trained pilot and astronaut—makes her well suited for the position. As our nation continues to rebuild the readiness of our Air Force, I look forward to working with her to maintain our military superiority in the skies and address the real challenges facing us in the space warfighting domain.”
