OFFICIAL: Dr. Ben Carson Confirmed As HUD Secretary

Big news for inner cities and urban America!

The Hill reports:

The Senate cleared the way on Tuesday for Ben Carson to take the helm of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The Senate Banking Committee approved Carson’s nomination, sending it to the floor for final confirmation.

President Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks need only a simple majority to clear the Senate, which means Carson can be confirmed with only Republican support, and Democrats cannot filibuster.

Senators only questioned Carson, who has never worked in government, for two and a half hours during his confirmation hearing earlier this month.

That was a contrast to other Trump picks, such as Attorney General nominee Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who faced nearly 12 hours of questions.
