Ryan Zinke Confirmed As Interior Secretary

President Trump added another member to his cabinet on Wednesday after the Senate voted to confirm his Interior Secretary nominee Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT).

The final tally was 68-31, with 16 Democrats voting in his favor.

Zinke, a former Navy SEAL, has served as a representative of Montana since 2015. The self-described "conservative conservationist" is expected to get to work rolling back Obama's climate change agenda.
