President Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs is set for his confirmation vote.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday, the upper chamber will vote on Robert Wilkie Monday.
This comes after the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee voted unanimously to approve his nomination earlier this month.
Wilkie served as acting VA secretary and stepped down after his nomination.
He’s drawn praise from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and is expected to easily be approved by the Senate.
