Cloture invoked on Watt nomination (FHFA)

Upon reconsideration, cloture on the Watt nomination (FHFA) was invoked 57-40. There will now be up to 8 hours for debate equally divided. The Senate will recess from 12:30pm until 2:15pm in order to allow for the weekly caucus meetings, with the time charged equally to both sides. Another message will be sent when the next vote is scheduled.
