The US Senate voted to reject Judy Shelton’s candidacy for a position as a Federal Reserve governor on November 17, dealing a blow to the controversial candidate but not fully ruling her out.

Shelton received 47 votes in favour and 50 against. Two Republican senators, Mitt Romney and Susan Collins, voted against. Lamar Alexander, also Republican, voiced his opposition to Shelton but abstained. Two other Republicans were unable to vote as they are quarantining due to Covid-19.
