How New England Senators Voted On Trump's Nominees

We're tracking how the 12 U.S. senators from New England are voting on President Trump's nominees for his Cabinet and other top positions that require Senate confirmation.

We're updating this post after each confirmation vote before the full Senate (not committee votes). The votes are in chronological order.


  • On Feb. 15, Trump's original pick for labor secretary, Andrew Puzder, withdrew his nomination.
  • *The DeVos vote was a 50-50 tie that was broken by Vice President Pence.
  • On Feb. 8, Trump announced that his Cabinet won't include a chair of the Council of Economic Advisers.
  • Hat-tip to The New York Times for the idea. We recommend the Times' post if you want to see how all 50 senators have voted.
