BCFP nominee Kraninger moves forward

Nov. 29, 2018 -- The nomination of Kathy Kraninger to head the CFPB advanced in the Senate today on a tight party-line vote. 

The Senate agreed to move forward with her confirmation in a 50-49 vote. Once she receives a final vote next week, Kraninger will replace acting director Mick Mulvaney, who took the helm of the agency a year ago. 

Republicans and Democrats had expected the confirmation vote to be partisan, and that's what occurred.
