WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sen. John Sununu of New Hampshire on Wednesday became the first Republican in the U.S. Congress to urge President George W. Bush to oust U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
The president should fire the attorney general and replace him as soon as possible with someone who can provide strong, aggressive leadership,
Sununu said in a statement a day after Gonzales admitted mistakes were made in the firing of eight federal prosecutors.
Earlier on Wednesday, Bush gave a lukewarm endorsement to Gonzales and said the firings of the U.S. attorneys was mishandled.
Im frankly not happy about it, Bush told a joint news conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon in Merida, Mexico.
Several Democrats in Congress have called on Gonzales to resign or be fired. A number of congressional Republicans have voiced concerns about the attorney general
, and Sununu was the first to publicly call for him to be replaced."
