Vote On Brownback Ambassador Nomination Expected This Week

The U.S. Senate is moving toward a vote on Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s nomination for an ambassador’s post.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed a motion on Monday to cut off debate on President Donald Trump’s nomination of the Kansas governor to serve as U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom.

McConnell communications director David Popp said in an email that a vote on the motion would occur Friday unless Democrats agree to have a vote sooner. Ending debate would clear the way for a vote on Brownback’s nomination.

If confirmed, Brownbock will resign as governor and be replaced by Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer
