Cloture Vote Passes for Chris Hill’s Iraq Nomination
Or maybe it won’t take so long. The Senate just voted 73-17 to close debate on Chris Hill’s nomination to become U.S. ambassador to Iraq. Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kans.) presented his case against Hill and said that he’d introduce his bill to reintroduce sanctions against North Korea tomorrow, alongside the final vote on Hill. Barring some act of the Almighty, Hill will be on his way to Baghdad shortly.
