WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) released the following statement after voting to confirm Antony Blinken as Secretary of State:

“Today, I was proud to vote to confirm Antony Blinken as Secretary of State. Mr. Blinken is highly qualified and well-prepared to lead the State Department, after previously serving as Deputy Secretary of State, Deputy National Security Advisor, and as Staff Director of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee,” said Senator Rosen. “We need to urgently restore the State Department’s role following a four-year abdication of leadership that weakened our institutions and diminished our standing around the globe. I look forward to working with Secretary Blinken to rebuild our alliances, strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship, address the threat of climate change, restore America’s global leadership, combat the alarming rise of extremism, and strengthen our national security.”
