U.S. Senate approves Carson for housing secretary post

WASHINGTON, March 2 (Reuters) - Ben Carson, President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead U.S. housing policy, won Senate approval on Thursday.

The vote cleared the way for the retired neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate to assume the post of secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). He becomes the sole African-American member of Trump’s cabinet. (Reporting by Eric Walsh)
