Senate confirms Trump nominee for deputy labor secretary

Republicans in the U.S. Senate on Thursday voted to confirm Patrick Pizzella, President Donald Trump’s nominee for deputy secretary of labor, after a months-long delay of his confirmation.

The Senate voted 50-48 to approve Pizzella to the number two spot at the U.S. Department of Labor.

Bush.
