John Kerry Confirmed as Secretary of State

Senator John Kerry (D-MA) was confirmed by both the Foreign Relations Committee and the full Senate today. The confirmation means all Sen. Kerry needs to do is resign his Senate seat in order to get sworn into office. His confirmation was passed unanimously through the committee, which he has chaired the past few years. Then, Sen. Kerry’s confirmation easily went through the full Senate, with a 94-3 vote. The only three Senators to vote against their colleague were Sens. Cornyn, Cruz, and Inhofe. Before Secretary-Designate Kerry gets sworn-in, presumably Friday, he will have a thank you event in Massachusetts on Thursday night. Secretary Clinton’s last day is Friday, so he will most likely be sworn-in that day.
