Senate Clears PenaFederico Pena won Senate confirmation Wednesday as Energy secretary, leaving only two Cabinet nominees, Alexis M. Herman at Labor and Anthony Lake at the CIA, still to be approved, The Los Angeles Times reported today.
The Senate cleared Pena's nomination by a 99-1 vote with only Sen. Rod Grams (R-Minn.) lining up against the former Transportation secretary and onetime mayor of Denver.
