Lobbyist and former Arizona Republican Party Chairman Robert Fannin was confirmed Friday as the new ambassador to the Dominican Republic.

Fannin was nominated by President Bush in January.

Fannin is a partner in the law firm Steptoe & Johnson, where he specializes in government relations.

The son of Paul Fannin, a former Arizona governor and senator, he was chairman of the state Republican Party from 2001 until 2005.

Fannin was not available Friday for comment. In a statement to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in September, he said he will draw on his experience as a lawyer, former military officer and member of nonprofit civic organizations to represent American interests in the Dominican Republic.
