Perry confirmed as Energy Secretary

Washington Examiner:
The Senate on Thursday confirmed former Texas Gov. Rick Perry to be President Trump's energy secretary.

Perry was approved by a vote of 62-37, with several Democrats from energy-dependent states supporting his bid, including Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

There was none of the political wrangling that surrounded the appointment of former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Trump's head of the Environmental Protection Agency, who was confirmed ahead of the President's Day recess.
Perry is an excellent choice for this cabinet position.  He has a record of supporting energy projects and restraining government spending.
