Senator Tommy Tuberville released his hold today on all military promotions that he’s been holding since February over the Pentagon’s abortion policy.
According to reports, the Senate has already confirmed around 440 promotions since Tuberville released his hold.
There are still eleven that remain, but Tuberville said those are four-star officers and they must be done via individual votes.
So did Tuberville get anything for his trouble? He certainly made his point but he didn’t get a reversal on the abortion policy like he’d hoped.
All of this comes after some of Tuberville’s Republican colleagues turned on him a few weeks ago and made a big show against him holding up these nominees.
