U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., a senior member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, voted to confirm Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce.

Wicker announced his support for Ross in December, after they met to discuss job creation and economic growth. The Senate approved Ross’s nomination by a vote of 72 to 27.

“I am confident Mr. Ross’s leadership at the Commerce Department will benefit American workers and job creators,” Wicker said. “He has the business acumen and experience we need to reignite the economy and reaffirm job security after eight years of sluggish growth. I am glad President Trump has recognized the potential that Mr. Ross would bring to this position. Although Senate Democrats have tried to delay the confirmation process, today we added another highly qualified member to the President’s team.”
