***VOTE ON NOMINATION DELAYED***GOP Sen. Voinovich Sinks Bolton Nomination

Republican Ohio Sen. George Voinovich has told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that he is “not comfortable” voting for the nomination of John Bolton to be the U.S. Ambassodor to the United Nations. Voinovich suggested that the committee delay a vote on the nomination that would send Bolton’s name to the Senate Floor for a full Senate vote. Committee Chairman Lugar (R.-Ind.) has agreed to postpone the vote until after the Senate’s recess.
