Schumer sets up confirmation blitz in Senate
By Jordain Carney - 02/22/21 04:51 PM EST

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is teeing up a blitz of confirmation floor votes on President Biden's nominees this week.

The focus on nominations comes as Senate Democrats are waiting for the House to send them Biden's proposed $1.9 trillion coronavirus bill. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants a House vote on the bill by Friday, allowing the Senate to take it up as soon as next week.

In the meantime, Schumer said that Democrats would be working to confirm four Biden picks.

"The Senate will continue the process of confirming President Biden's nominees with a vote on Linda Thomas-Greenfield to serve as the next U.N. ambassador," he said from the Senate floor Monday.

The Senate is expected to hold an initial vote on Thomas-Greenfield's nomination Monday night.
