WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State:
“I am pleased that Rex Tillerson has been confirmed as our nation’s chief diplomat. I have confidence that he will represent our nation well and that he will be a strong and effective voice for America’s interests, and those of our allies, on the international stage. These are anxious times around the world. We are counting on Rex Tillerson’s steady hand to help guide us through.
The Senate will continue to move forward with the confirmation process for the remaining nominees. It is time for Senate Democrats to respect the outcome of the election and refrain from the obstructionist manner in which they have conducted business since President Trump took office.”
