This week, over on the Election Central Web site we take a look at progress being made in the number of nominees and appointments that President Trump has made for his cabinet advisers and several department heads.

On Inauguration Day, the Senate confirmed the first two of President Trump’s cabinet nominees: Retired Marine General James Mattis as Secretary of Defense, and Retired Marine General John Kelly as Secretary of Homeland Security. Both nominees faced very little opposition in the Senate. The vote to confirm General Mattis was 98-1 (with one abstention), and the vote to confirm General Kelly was 88-11. Both nominees were sworn in Friday evening by Vice President Pence.
