Cordray to get a Senate vote

Senators have apparently reached a deal to allow a vote — today — on the nomination of Richard Cordray to had the CFPB. Majority Leader Harry Reid had threatened to change Senate rules to end filibusters on executive branch nominees if Republican Senators did not allow votes on Cordray and other executive branch nominees. Under the deal, the two pending nominees to the National Labor Relations Board would be withdrawn and replaced with other individuals. And votes on five other nominees would be allowed to go forward, including Cordray, Gina McCarthy as EPA Administrator, and Thomas Perez
as Labor Secretary.
