As first reported by National Public Radio, Attorney General Eric Holder plans to step down from his position after five-and-a-half years in the leadership role at the Justice Department.

According to the report by Carrie Johnson, Holder plans to remain in the role until the Senate confirms his successor and that process could stretch into next calendar year.

Johnson reports that a potential candidate to succeed Holder is Solicitor General Don Verrilli, the White House’s main representative to the Supreme Court.

Holder finalized his plans to leave DOJ in a meeting with President Barack Obama held over Labor Day Weekend, Johnson reports.
