Senator David Perdue Votes To Confirm New Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after voting to confirm President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson:  

“President Trump is working to make bold changes to re-establish American leadership and credibility around the world. Rex Tillerson will be instrumental in this effort as our new Secretary of State because he’s not a Washington bureaucrat. Mr. Tillerson has managed extremely large operations globally and negotiated major deals in foreign countries. These unique qualifications and his outside perspective will change, and greatly improve, our diplomatic relations. I am extremely encouraged by Mr. Tillerson’s new role to lead our nation in a new direction after eight years of foreign policy failures.”
