WASHINGTON - The Senate Finance Committee has delayed a vote on President Donald Trump's nominee for Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, until Tuesday morning after Democrats objected to a request to hold a vote on Monday night, a Republican spokeswoman for the panel said. The "irregular objection" from Democrats to the evening vote means that the panel will now vote at 10 a.m. EST on Tuesday, when the committee will also vote on Tom Price's nomination as secretary of Health and Human Services, said Julia Lawless, a spokeswoman for the committee's chairman, Senator Orrin Hatch.
