Manchin Votes To Confirm Labor Secretary Walsh

Walsh was confirmed 68-29 with strong bipartisan support

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), voted to confirm Marty Walsh as U.S. Secretary of Labor.

“This evening I voted to confirm Mayor Marty Walsh as Labor Secretary. As Mayor of Boston, he created 100,000 jobs and proved his dedication to rebuilding the middle class. As the senior Senator for a state ravaged by the drug epidemic, I respect Mayor Walsh’s openness about his own struggles with addiction and his strong support for programs that help put recovering Americans back to work. I believe Mayor Walsh will be a strong Labor Secretary for working Americans and their families, and I look forward to working with him to help create and fill good-paying jobs across the Mountain State.”
