McConnell objects to National Security nominations

Senator Klobuchar asked unanimous consent that the Senate enter Executive Session to consider the following nominations:

Executive Calendar #263, Samuel D. Heins, to be Ambassador to the Kingdom of Norway; and

Executive Calendar #148, Azita Raji, to be Ambassador to the Kingdom of Sweden;

that the Senate then proceed to vote on confirmation of the nominations.

Senator McConnell objected to the request on behalf of Senator Cruz.
