Carson confirmed as HUD Secretary

Washington, D.C. — Famed neurosurgeon and past presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson was confirmed as head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development on Thursday.

NBC reports the vote took place mostly along party lines.

President Trump’s choice to tap Carson was met with skepticism, as Carson is seen as having little to no experience in issues related to housing. But Carson promised to surround himself with experts in the field and even go on a tour to hear from HUD employees across the nation.
