The U.S. Senate is expected to confirm Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Tuesday afternoon following a vote that effectively ended a two-year battle by Republicans to block the confirmation, the Washington Post reported.

Senators voted 71-29 to move forward with Cordray’s nomination as part of a deal to avert Democrats’ move to change Senate rules regarding filibusters of presidential appointees to federal agencies.
