Linda McMahon Confirmed For Trump Cabinet Job – Hartford Courant

Retired wrestling executive Linda McMahon was easily confirmed by the Senate Tuesday to run the federal Small Business Administration.

McMahon, a 68-year-old Republican from Greenwich , was approved by a 81-19 vote, getting the support of many more Democrats than most of President Donald Trump‘s cabinet nominees. Both Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy both voted for her.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said McMahon will “prioritize growing jobs over growing government bureaucracy.”

“In so many states, including mine, that’s a welcome change from Washington,” he said.
