Christine Wormuth looks to be on the way to becoming the next secretary of the Army after her confirmation hearing this week. Two other high-level nominees have also made it through the hearing process, and more are coming.

  • Aaron Mehta, Deputy Editor and Senior Pentagon Correspondent at Defense News, said most of the nominees coming down the pipeline will have “largely easy” confirmations with high Republican support.
  • Tony Bertuca, Chief Editor at Inside the Pentagon, said the hearings this week went surprisingly smoothly, on the heels of the troubled nomination of Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl.
  • Bertuca and Mehta said the hearing for Frank Kendall for Air Force secretary could have more fireworks due in part to the stress on the F-35 program, which faces growing scrutiny over costs.
