Senate Vote on Lt. Gen. “H.R.” McMaster (National Security Adviser) to Retain Rank

Usually, this position does not require a Senate confirmation, but Lt. Gen. McMaster needed the Senate to confirm his third star. McMaster’s selection for the role was praised by Republicans and Democrats, so the question isn’t how many cross over to vote for him today, but how many committed partisans vote against him.

His confirmation vote is held immediately after Dan Coats, and we will be covering it live.

Refresh frequently to see how your Senators cast.

Note- with nearly the whole Senate now in the chamber, the vote is going to come fast, and should be an overwhelming yes. We will update if APPROVED first, then run the details on who votes aye and nay in as close-to-real-time as is possible.
