MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) -

Both of Mississippi's U.S. attorneys have been asked to resign by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to The Clarion Ledger. 

Gregory K. Davis, Southern District, and Felicia C. Adams, Northern District were two of the 46 U.S. attorneys in the nation asked to resign by Sessions on Friday. 

Both were nominated by former President Barack Obama. 

Southern District spokeswoman Sheila Wilbanks confirmed to The Clarion Ledger that Davis submitted his resignation on Friday as requested. 

The Ledger was unable to get confirmation on Adams' resignation. 

Davis took office on April 11, 2012 and Adams was appointed on July 3, 2011. 

The Department of Justice has removed Davis' information from their website, and Adams information was replaced with Robert H. Norman.
