As political Web sites speculate about possible replacements for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, the White House says Gonzales continues to have President Bush's support.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is still facing calls to resign over the way his department fired eight U.S. attorneys. And last night Congress received 3,000 more pages of e-mails and other material related to how the U.S. attorneys were fired.

The Senate debates today whether or not to rescind the attorney general's authority to appoint new U.S. attorneys to replace the ones he fired.
