Mattis Confirmed as Defense Secretary

James Mattis was confirmed as the next Defense Secretary of the United States, as reported by CNN.

As the Senate voted on retired Gen. James Mattis for defense secretary, he easily cleared the 50-vote majority threshold. New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was the first and so far only senator to vote against him.
The Senate was set to vote next on retired Gen. John Kelly for homeland security secretary.
