The vote to close debate on Richard Cordray’s nomination to lead the CFPB is going on right now and, according to the Washington Post, the Senate has reached a tentative deal to confirm Cordray and avoid the “nuclear option.” Speaking on the floor of the Senate this morning, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, said “We may have a way forward on this, I feel fairly confident.” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., also reportedly signaled that enough Republicans would break ranks to support breaking a filibuster on Cordray’s nomination. The deal is expected to be finalized this afternoon.
