From Ben White's Morning Money Newsletter, here's the report on Buckley & Strange:
POLITICO’s Lorraine Woellert: “There’s no shortage of wannabes to fill Richard Cordray’s soon-to-be-vacant post at the CFPB. The latest names to circulate are Jerry Buckley of Buckley Sandler, an industry go-to for consumer finance law, and Alabama’s Luther Strange, the Senate short-timer who lost his GOP primary to Roy Moore.
“Strange would ‘make sense’ said one Senate staffer. He’s popular on both sides of the aisle and probably would be an easy confirmation. Plus, ‘he greatly values public service,’ the staffer said. Buckley and Strange didn’t respond to requests for comment.”
