WH: Why Did Rand Paul Vote to Confirm John Kerry, but Won’t Confirm Pompeo?

The senator is threatening to scuttle Mike Pompeo's nomination for secretary of state, even though he supported President Obama's nominees.

White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short predicted on MSNBC on Monday that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) would change his mind to supporting Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo.

Pompeo’s nomination is in jeopardy in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, drawing opposition from every Democratic senator, plus Paul.

“I think it’s incredibly hard for Senator Paul to go back to Kentucky and say that he voted for John Kerry to be secretary of state but wouldn’t vote for Mike Pompeo to be secretary of state,” Short said.

Short told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson that the president continues to discuss the nomination with the senator.
