WASHINGTON D.C., -- Former Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.) is one step closer to being the director of national intelligence for President Donald Trump.
The Senate Intelligence Committee voted Thursday to advance Coats' nomination to a full Senate vote.
The vote was 13-2. Democrats Ron Wyden of Oregon and Kamala Harris of California voted no.
According to TheHill , the only major concern brought up by the committee was that Coats could be too nice for the job.
Coats was a senator from Indiana from 1989-1999, then 2011-2017.
The Senate vote has not been scheduled.
