GOP senator: Biden Cabinet picks will be a 'discussion' with Republican Senate [View all]

Screw them and the horse they rode in on, seriously. Another reason to send $ to GA. And people outside of the political mainstream shouldn't be considered? Toomey, where did Ivanka and Jared fall? Delusional and so very hypocritical.




GOP senator: Biden Cabinet picks will be a 'discussion' with Republican Senate
By Jordain Carney - 11/11/20 02:23 PM EST


Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) said on Wednesday that he expected the nomination process for President-elect Joe Biden's Cabinet to be an "ongoing discussion" with Senate Republicans, if they hold on to the majority.

Toomey's comments come as Democrats worry that a Republican Senate majority could force Biden to negotiate over his picks for top administration positions and block nominees they view as too progressive.

Toomey said during a Washington Post Live interview that Cabinet picks were a "shared responsibility" between the president and the Senate majority.

"The president should get significant deference ... and I think that is, that is important. Having said that, especially when you have divided government ... we've got to recognize we've got a responsibility: advice and consent," Toomey said.

"So I think people who are well outside of the political mainstream don't belong in really important, senior-level, Cabinet-type posts. And that's why that will be an ongoing discussion, I think, between a Republican Senate and Joe Biden," Toomey added.
