  •  A list of Senators who signed wd be helpful (0+ / 0-)

    The WSJ article is behind Rupert's paywall; no way will I give him more $$, but anyone with access or other knowledge of the list pls help.

    The Bloomberg article mentions a few Senators positions:
    'The letter campaign, led by Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, demonstrates the support that Yellen is gaining for the nomination and the struggle that Summers may face in winning Senate confirmation, if nominated.

    Senators Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Tom Harkin of Iowa are among the senators who’ve signed the letter. Brown said earlier this week he supported Yellen....

    “Janet Yellen would be outstanding,” Senator Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat, said in an interview July 24. “I’ve known her for a long time. She has tremendous experience and the right temperament, and I think it would be great to have her.”  '

    The article also says Wyden is for Summers, and Schumer
    "said he didn’t have a preference."

    There's no such thing as a free market!
