Carlucci Confirmed, 91-1

November 20, 1987|Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Senate voted 91 to 1 today to confirm Frank C. Carlucci as secretary of defense, replacing the retiring Caspar W. Weinberger.

Carlucci, 57, was nominated by President Reagan just 15 days ago after serving less than a year as national security adviser, a post he was given after the departure of Rear Adm. John M. Poindexter during the Iran-Contra affair. Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) was the lone senator to vote against the nomination. Carlucci was approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee last Friday on a 20-0 vote.
