Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) switched his "no" vote to support for CIA Director Mike Pompeo as the next secretary of State, giving President Trump's pick just enough backers to eke out confirmation. “President Trump believes that Iraq was a mistake, that regime change has destabilized the region, and that we must end our involvement with Afghanistan," the libertarian GOP senator added. “Having received assurances from President Trump and Director Pompeo that he agrees with the president on these important issues, I have decided to support his nomination to be our next secretary of State.”
