SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 12 (Reuters) - The Republican leadership at the U.S. Senate has discussed holding a vote on U.S. President Donald Trump’s nominees to the Federal Reserve as early as next week, Bloomberg News reported Thursday, citing Republican Senator John Cornyn.
Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski will support Trump’s controversial pick for one of the two open posts, former economic advisor Judy Shelton, Bloomberg News reporter Saleha Mohsin tweeted. Republicans have a 53-47 majority in the current Senate, and two have said they will oppose Shelton. Control of the body as of next year depends on the outcome of a Jan. 5 runoff election in Georgia.
