WSJ: Randal Quarles wins Senate approval

The Senate approved Randal Quarles for a key banking oversight post on the Federal Reserve Board, marking President Donald Trump’s first imprint on the central bank and his first full-time appointment of a banking regulator.

The vote to confirm Quarles to the Fed board was 65-32, with 14 Democrats supporting the nomination along with all Republicans and one independent.
