Wheeler Still Stuck In The Senate
Politico is reporting that President Obama's choice to head the FCC was held up by none other than Senator Ted Cruz. There's a name we haven't heard much of lately. A request had been made Thursday that the Senate unanimously confirm Tom Wheeler but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid never asked for unanimous consent on the floor. Politico says one of its sources indicated that Cruz was the hold-up on the nominee for chairman. The earliest the nominee could move forward now is Oct. 28.
