WASHINGTON - The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee narrowly approved President Donald Trump's choice for secretary of state, former Exxon Mobil chairman Rex Tillerson, on Monday.
The vote was 11-10, with every committee Republican backing Tillerson and every Democrat opposing his nomination.
Tillerson is expected to be confirmed for the position when the matter comes before the 100-member Senate, where Republicans hold a 52-seat majority.
