U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., has announced his support for the nomination of Mike Pompeo to be Secretary of State.

Pompeo currently serves as director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

“When I met with Director Pompeo, we had a productive conversation about the complex security challenges we face, including the dangerous threat posed by North Korea's nuclear missile program,” Donnelly said in a statement released on Monday. “I strongly believe that a successful, peaceful outcome will require a comprehensive strategy and a full team on the field, including an effective State Department, to leverage all available tools. We need a Secretary of State who will give the president an honest assessment on critical issues, including Russia, Syria, and the defeat of ISIS. I believe Director Pompeo is capable of advancing U.S. interests and leading the State Department, and I will support his nomination.”

Donnelly met with Pompeo on April 10 to discuss the nomination.
