The only senator- Democrat or Republican- who voted against all the Cabinet confirmations of Biden, is Hawley (R-Mo.), and thus became the most vocal opponent of the President in the Senate.

On Feb. 2, he voted “nay” during the confirmations of both Pete Buttigieg as transportation secretary and Alejandro Mayorkas as homeland security secretary.

Before, he voted against Janet Yellen as Treasury secretary, Lloyd Austin as defense secretary, Antony Blinken as Biden’s secretary of state, and Avril Haines as the director of national intelligence.

Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Mike Lee (R-Utah) have each voted against four of Biden’s nominees.

Sens. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have voted against three of the president’s Cabinet choices.

On the other hand, except for Mayorkas, Biden’s nominee for Secretary of Homeland Security, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) voted to confirm all of Biden’s Cabinet nominee.

Feb. 2, Lee voted for Buttigieg, who was confirmed 86–13.

His spokesperson said:

“Sen. Lee was encouraged by his questioning with Mr. Buttigieg in committee, particularly with his answers on the problems with increasing the gas tax, and he is hopeful he can find more common ground with him as secretary.”

Many believed that Hawley is a potential 2024 presidential candidate, but last month, he announced that this is not his intention.

In an interview for Fox News on Jan.26, he said:

 “I’ve always said … that I’m not running for president. I just got elected barely two years ago. There’s a lot of work to do, and I look forward to continuing to fight for Missouri every day that I can.”

Yet, many senators and other politicians have made such statements earlier as well.

The Missouri Republican was also the first among senators to claim that he plans to object to the electoral certification on Jan. 6, doing so for Pennsylvania.

Cruz objected to Arizona’s electors.

Therefore, they were accused of the riots at the Capitol on the same day, even though electoral challenges are supported by the Constitution, and Democratic representatives and senators have objected during recent presidential elections.

According to Hawley’s team, the senator has raked in almost $1 million in donations since the beginning of this year.

Since Jan. 1, Hawley has raked in nearly $1 million in donations, according to his team. He opposed big tech censorship and openly spoke about the attempts by corporations to silence him.

After the Capitol breach, publisher Simon & Schuster canceled his book deal, so he tweeted his response:

 “This could not be more Orwellian Simon & Schuster is canceling my contract because I was representing my constituents, leading a debate on the Senate floor on voter integrity, which they have now decided to redefine as sedition.”
