Dem Sen. Joe Manchin Backing Pompeo Nomination

Trump's Pompeo rant: President tweets frustration at 'obstructionist Democrats'

"I realize my Democratic friends in many cases feel like that in supporting Pompeo, it's a proxy for support of the Trump administration policies, which many of them abhor".

President Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, is facing serious opposition before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which may not have enough votes to recommend him for confirmation because all Democrats, and at least one Republican, have said they will oppose him.

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin tweeted that he will support Pompeo in his confirmation vote, increasing his chances of being confirmed by the chamber.

This week, key senior Foreign Relations Committee Democrats, Kaine and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, announced they would vote against Pompeo.

The full Senate is expected to vote on the nomination this week. "I believe Director Pompeo is capable of advancing U.S. interests and leading the State Department, and I will support his nomination". "Urge Senator Manchin to again vote yes for Mike Pompeo". "In the end, a secretary of state is a secretary of state whether by one vote or 100".

While he was confirmed to lead the Central Intelligence Agency with a 66-32 vote a year ago, Pompeo has faced new challenges in the Senate, with lawmakers decrying a "lack of diplomacy" they say is needed to act as the nation's top diplomat.

Both of the senators join North Dakota Sen.

"I haven't made up my mind", Manchin said this week. The senator 'is reviewing his record before making a final decision'.

"Just as President Obama was entitled to nominees, even if I disagreed with them, President Trump has his nominees that should be voted on", Gardner said.

As the nomination moves to the Senate floor, the GOP's slim majority, which slips with the absence of Sen.

"If he's confirmed, I'll hold Mr. Pompeo accountable to make sure he advances our country's leadership in the world and supports our embassies - including by filling critical jobs that have been vacant, like for the U.S. Ambassador to South Korea".

Coons said he anxious that Pompeo "will embolden, rather than moderate or restrain, President Trump's most belligerent and risky instincts".

The last Cabinet-level nominee to be reported unfavorably by a committee and still confirmed by the full Senate, according to the Senate Historian's Office, was Henry Wallace, who was confirmed in 1945 to serve as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's commerce secretary. Heidi Heitkamp as Democrats who have to publicly announced their support for Pompeo.
