UPDATE: Arizona Senators Vote No To Confirm Thomas Perez As Labor Secretary

Arizona's Senators joined all of their GOP colleagues in voting "nay" on the confirmation of Thomas Perez as Labor Secretary this afternoon.  The nomination was approved on a straight party-line 54-46 vote.

Perez leaves his post as Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, where he was the attorney who filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office alleging "discriminatory and unconstitutional law enforcement practices."
