WaPo Reports Obama to Re-Nominate Cordray to Head CFPB

by Jeff Sovern

Here.  I have seen reports that Cordray might seek the Ohio governorship, even that he might leave the CFPB directorship before his recess appointment expires at the end of this year to that end, but perhaps this indicates that he will stay at the Bureau.  I wonder if this is a pro forma thing or whether it means that the president thinks something may have changed or will change in the Senate–perhaps a change in the fillibuster rules?–that will enable the Senate to vote on Cordray's confirmation.
