Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) “insisted that he will likely vote yes on a handful of” President-elect Trump’s Cabinet selections. “The Ohio Democrat said he will likely back Robert Lighthizer, Trump’s pick for U.S. trade ambassador; Wilbur Ross, Jr., Trump’s commerce secretary pick; defense secretary nominee James Mattis; transportation secretary pick Elaine Chao; and Veterans Administration nominee David Shulkin.”

Brown “announced he would not support Betsy DeVos for education secretary.” He also isn’t likely to back Rep. Tom Price’s (R-GA) nomination for Health and Human Services Secretary. (Columbus Dispatch)
