WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U. S. Senate on Wednesday approved Federal Reserve Governor Sarah Bloom Raskin to be the No. 2 official at the Treasury Department, backing a critic of Wall Street to help coordinate an overhaul of financial regulations.
The Senate approved the nomination by voice vote.
Raskin, who was a state banking supervisor before she joined the Fed, is expected to play a central role in the roll-out of regulations aimed at preventing a repeat of the 2007-09 financial crisis.
Her departure from the central bank opens yet another seat on the Fed’s board for President Barack Obama to fill.
Republicans are madly spinning the narrow Republican victory by David Jolly over Democrat Alex Sink in last night's special election in Florida's 13th Congressional District as a referendum on Obamacare. Now that they've won. Before the ballots were counted, of course, the special election wasn't going to be predictive. Really:
NRSC's Walden Tues 10am.: "Special elections aren't too predictive." 8pm: FL13 "a loud warning" for "Democrats running coast to coast."
Reality check: 48.4 percent of the vote in your favor in an extremely low-turnout election is not a referendum.
