WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Richard Clarida, President Trump’s nominee to be vice chair of the Federal Reserve, cleared a procedural vote on Tuesday in the U.S. Senate.

Clarida, a managing director at fund manager Pimco and an economics professor at Columbia University, was nominated by President Donald Trump in April. The Senate voted 69-26 to advance his nomination to fill the post, one of the U.S. central bank’s most powerful, but it was not clear when a final vote would take place.
