Senate Confirms Pompeo to Be Secretary of States

The Senate confirmed Mike Pompeo to be the next secretary of state on Thursday, by a vote of 57 to 42.

Pompeo, who is 54, served in the House of Representatives from 2011 until 2017, when he became the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

While serving as CIA director, Pompeo met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un earlier this month to discuss the upcoming summit with President Trump.

Senate Democrats vehemently opposed Pompeo’s nomination but were unsuccessful in blocking his confirmation, as four red-state Democrats eventually threw their support behind Pompeo.
