The Senate Foreign Relations Committee at 2:30 p.m. today is scheduled to take up the nomination of state Sen. David Adelman (D-Decatur) as U.S. ambassador to Singapore.
Here’s a link to what may be the video, come meeting time.
Adelman’s nomination is one of 15 being considered this afternoon. It was postponed during Washington’s last round of blizzards. Another is on the way.
This is the penultimate hurdle – a floor vote could quickly follow, if the weather holds.
Locally, Adelman’s formal nomination would set off a special election contest for his state Senate seat. The field would include Jason Carter, grandson of the former president.
