A Florida senator is blocking one of President Donald Trump's nominees in frustration over the White House's decision to delay disaster money for the state's citrus growers.
Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson says in a statement Thursday he was disappointed with Trump's decision not to add money for citrus growers to a $36.5 billion disaster aid package.
The House passed the bill last week and the Senate is on track to back it in the next few days.
Nelson says Trump indicated the money would be in a supplemental spending bill in November.
The senator says: "So I just put a hold on one of his nominees to make sure we get this money."
The nominee is Russell Vought, Trump's pick for deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget.
