Pompeo could be the first secretary of state nominee to receive an unfavorable committee vote since


Always thought he was a little pompous..A military sort..which there is nothing wrong
with that as long as they leave the 10 hut attitude back at the barracks. When the two
Muslims..man and women, gunned down the rest home residents, pompeo ranted about
cells around the country. Claimed there were muslims around the country that had insight
into these attacks...a real xenophobic..

Washington (CNN)It's starting to look like Mike Pompeo might not get a favorable vote from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to support his nomination as secretary of state, after three Democrats (and at least one Republican) on the panel have signaled they'll vote against the current CIA director.
Nominations can advance to full confirmation without a favorable recommendation from committee, but it is relatively uncommon.
But is this the first time? According to the Senate historian's office, there are no instances of a secretary of state nominee receiving an unfavorable committee vote since 1925.
Prior to the mid to late 1920s, nearly all executive Senate committee business was done in closed session, so there was no public record for these actions, the office added.
