Rand voted "No" on confirmation, as did

Sens. Barasso and Cruz and 30+ others. Brennan was confirmed by the required majority. Did Rand (and the others) change his (their) vote(s) later, when it made no difference whatsoever? Is that the capitualtion you mean? Other than in that event, I have no idea what you are talking about. Rand voted NO when the vote was taken, even though he would normally agree that a president has the right to appoint who he/she wants. He did NOT do that in this case.
