Cordray Vote Underway

Views

Richard Cordray’s nomination seems set to sail through the Senate now. Voting is underway on cloture, which is where we’ll see if Cordray can overcome the filibuster that has already derailed his nomination once and has delayed his confirmation for years and denied a permanent director for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau since its creation. So far, he’s on track to easily beat the filibuster, as per the deal struck to break the GOP-created logjam.
