Gonzales said Monday he is not focused on the Senate 'no confidence' vote.
ATLANTA (CNN) – If Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is paying any attention to Monday’s potential no-confidence vote in the Senate, it’s not his “focus”.
Gonzales spoke with reporters twice Monday - once after an appearance in Miami, Florida, and again in Mobile, Alabama – and both times he was decidedly on message, with the buzz word ‘focus”. Gonzales repeated several times as he was pressed on the vote, “I’m not focusing on what the Senate is doing. I’m focusing on what the people of the United States expect of their Attorney General.”
“I am focusing on sprinting to the finish line,” he repeated at both stops. “The department is not going to stumble and crawl to the finish line. The issues we work on are too important.”
