Schumer to Bypass Tuberville on Military Nominees

October 31, 2023 at 7:48 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 34 Comments



“Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told Democrats during their lunch on Tuesday that he will file cloture on three key military nominees, which have been delayed for months due to Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s hold,” CNN reports.

“Specifically, he will file cloture on the officers nominated to be chief of Naval Operations, Air Force chief of staff, and, notably, the vice commandant of the Marine Corps.”
