WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Democratic leaders on Tuesday urged fellow senator and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to attend the vote Judy Shelton, President Donald Trump’s controversial pick for the Federal Reserve, a Bloomberg reporter said on Twitter.
The timing of the vote on Shelton is in flux with two Republican senators in quarantine amid the COVID-19 outbreak, making Harris’ vote potentially critical. Democrats were uncertain she would be able to make the vote, Bloomberg’s Laura Litvan tweeted, citing the No. 2 Senate Democrat Dick Durbin.
