The Senate voted 52 – 46 to confirm former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as the next administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The confirmation, which was helped along by two Democratic senators, is a major blow to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the party.

For Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins, R-Me., and John McCain, R-Ariz., again did not support President Donald J. Trump’s nominee. But Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., both are in deeply red states that voted for the president and both voted for Mr. Pruitt.
