Asahi wrote that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved by a majority vote on Wednesday the nomination of former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to serve as the next ambassador to Japan, saying that the move was a major step toward his appointment. Noting that the committee advanced the nomination despite opposition from a few Democratic senators because many Republican committee members supported it, the paper said attention will now be focused on the vote to be held in the evenly divided Senate.
