Tester To Vote 'no' On Summers

Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat from Montana, will not support Larry Summers to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve, according to a spokeswoman Friday. Tester's opposition was first reported by Reuters. Tester is a member of the Senate Banking Committee, where Summers would face his first vote if nominated. Three more liberal Democrats on the Banking panel are already expected to oppose Summers meaning that he will have to pick up some Republican votes given the two-vote majority enjoyed by Democrats. Sen. Mike Johanns, a Republican of Nebraska, has indicated that he is open to supporting Summers.Copyright © 2013 MarketWatch, Inc....
