Confirmation Vote of Ryan Zinke for Secretary of the Interior

This morning, the Senate votes on confirming Ryan Zinke for Secretary of the Interior. Representative Zinke won many, many Democratic votes for cloture, which passed 67-31-1 Monday evening. The most prominent Democrat to support him is of course Senator Jon Tester, who is beyond elated to see his strongest competition for 2018 in the Cabinet instead of ramping up a campaign.

We will track the votes live, just like we did Monday, and hopefully every Senator will be happy to have their vote called out loudly this time (Florida’s Bill Nelson was an aye but did not have his vote declared audibly). Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has voted “present” both at his committee vote and during cloture.
