A full Senate floor vote has confirmed CIA Director Mike Pompeo as the new secretary of state.
The 57-42 vote came after a handful of Democrats facing re-election in states that voted for President Donald Trump, pledged their support for Pompeo's nomination.
Earlier this week, he got a favorable recommendation from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — despite Democrats' concerns about his failure to disclose information about a trip to North Korea and what he's said in the past about Muslims and same-sex marriage.
Gina Haspel will take over as CIA acting director. Her confirmation hearing is scheduled for May 9.
