Wicker explains how Senate avoided ‘nuclear option’

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) says after a series of bipartisan meetings, a compromise was reached over two nominees to the National Labor Relations Board.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) had threatened to change the rules and impose the “nuclear option” to end the ability of 41 senators in the 100-member chamber to block action on White House nominations other than judges.

Reid was frustrated that Republicans refused to move forward with nine Obama appointments.
