Trump Nominee Not Hindered by Bernie Sanders' Religious Litmus Test

by Tony Perkins

Tony Perkins is President of Family Research Council. This article appeared in Daily Signal on June 23, 2017. No thanks to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., President Donald Trump’s pick for the Office of Management and Budget is one step closer to his new job. After a faith-based grilling that left Sanders red-faced and Americans in shock, Russell Vought’s nomination squeaked out of the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee by the narrowest of margins, 8-7.
