Confirmed: Ambassadors to Europe and the Western Hemisphere

The Senate unanimously confirmed these nominees to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the following countries in Europe and the Western Hemisphere:

282, Ann Derse - Ambassador to Lithuania 284, Kennth Merten - Ambassador to Haiti 285, Donald Beyer - Ambassador to Switzerland - Liechetenstein 286, John Nay - Ambassador to Suriname 287, Vinai Thummalapally - Ambassador to Belize 288, Nicole Avant - Ambassador to the Bahamas 289, Howard Gutman - Ambassador to Belgium 290, Vilma Martinez - Ambassador to Argentina 291, David Thorne - Ambassador the Italian Republic

It looks like eight nominees did not make it out of the Senate for one reason or another this round: Capricia Penavic Marshall, Philip L. Verveer, Nancy J. Powell, Maria Otero, Carlos Pascual, Arturo Valenzuela, Thomas Shannon and Jeffrey D. Feltman. I will post the congressional record for those confirmed as soon as it becomes available.
