2 Democrats cinch Priutt to head EPA
WTF? How could 2 Democratic Senators vote for Pruitt to head the EPA? Those Senators are West Virginia Joe Manchin III and North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp. Surely they know Pruitt's history of suing the EPA as OK's Atty. General. Given that one Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, voted against Pruitt, and the fact that McCain was not present to vote, had those 2 above Dems voted against Priutt there wouldn't have been the 51 votes needed to confirm him.
