Zinke confirmation postponed

(WASHINGTON, D.C.)- There's been a hold placed on Congressman Ryan Zinke's confirmation hearing as the next Interior Secretary. 

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee was scheduled for a business meeting today as the Senate continues to consider his nomination for the cabinet post in the Trump Administration. 

However, late in the evening, the committee's website posted a vote on Zinke's appointment Tuesday was being "postponed", with no additional explanation for the delay. The same was true for Governor Rick Perry's nomination as Energy Secretary. 

Montana's political leaders are watching the confirmation with interest because of the moves necessary to replace the Whitefish Republican if his confirmation is made, including a special election to fill his seat.
