Wilbur Ross Confirmed As Commerce Secretary. Cloture Voted On Ryan Zinke

The Senate just voted to confirm Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce but a vote of 72-27.

Cloture was voted on Ryan Zinke to be Secretary of the Interior.

If the Democrats milk all 30 hours of debate out of the Zinke nomination, the earliest he could be cofirmed is Wednesday.

Next up is Ben Carson followed by Rick Perry followed by Seema Verna for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Then the battle of filling senior sub-cabinet posts will start.
