Senate Breaking News: Senate Clears Hurdle to Move Ahead With Cordray Confirmation

by Wochit 0:48 mins

The Senate voted to move toward confirmation of Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, ending a months-long standoff on the issue. Senate leaders struck a deal to avoid the "nuclear option," as Republicans relented and allowed a series of President Barack Obama's stalled nominees to move forward toward confirmation. Senators braced for a possible showdown over filibusters Tuesday, as Democratic leaders rejected a Republican offer to confirm seven contested White House nominees without promising a future peace accord on the matter.
