Senate advances Fed nominee Lisa Cook to final confirmation vote

The Senate edged closer on Tuesday to confirming one of President Biden’s nominees to the Federal Reserve.

Lawmakers voted 50 to 49 in favor of ending the debate on the nomination of the Lisa Cook, economist and professor of international relations at Michigan State University. The vote could allow them to proceed later on Tuesday to confirm her to the central bank’s seven-member board of governors.
