Texas & Oklahoma U.S. Senators vote against Kerry confirmation

 

Washington, D.C. - While U.S. Senator John Kerry sailed to an easy confirmation as the next Secretary of State, three senators close to home are speaking out against it.

Texas Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn and Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe were the only three no votes. Inhofe released a statement saying while he considers Kerry a friend, Kerry has made wrong national defense decisions as far back as the cold war and in meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad multiple times.

Inhofe says "Kerry's lack of ability at times to distinguish between friend and foe is troubling."

Kerry was confirmed 94 to 3.
