Obama’s labor board nominees confirmed

Tuesday’s votes included the last of the seven nominees who were part of a bipartisan deal earlier this month in which some Republicans agreed to end stalling tactics. Democratic leaders hope to also push other nominations through the Senate before Congress begins its summer recess this weekend, but some face uncertain fates.
