Pritzker Confirmed as Commerce Secretary

The Senate easily confirmed Penny Pritzker as the new Commerce Secretary, by a vote of 97 to 1, the Washington Post reports.

"Pritzerk's nomination was initially thought to face some hurdles in the Senate, owing to the Hyatt hotel heiress's battles with labor unions and some personal financial issues. In the end, though, nobody stepped up to vocally oppose her nomination."
