Sen. Sullivan a "yes" vote for Rep. Haaland as Interior Secretary

    Deb Haaland, who has recently confirmed as Secretary of the Interior for the US

    WASHINGTON (KINY) - Alaska US Senator Dan Sullivan, a Republican, voted to confirm Representative Deb Haaland as the first Indigenous Secretary of the Interior.

    Sullivan said in a statement that it was one of the most difficult decisions he had ever made.

    In normal times, he said her confirmation would be an easy "no" vote. Sullivan thinks that his "yes" vote will help him negotiate positive change for Alaska, and that she was sure to win without his vote.
