President Trump’s choice for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, was approved by the Senate Wednesday afternoon in a 56-43 vote.

Despite large opposition by Democrats, three Democrat senators joined Republicans to support Tillerson. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), and Mark Warner (D-Va.) all voted for Tillerson, as well as Independent, Angus King (Maine).

Republican Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio had all been reluctant to support Tillerson but ended up voting for him.

Tillerson was the chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil from 2006 to 2016.
