Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin breaks with Schumer on Fetterman dress code change: ‘Need to have standards’
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Senate Democrat, blasted the recent dress code easing for Sen. John Fetterman (D-Penn.) — and suggested the upper chamber “needs to act on this.”
“I’m concerned about it. The senator in question from Pennsylvania is a personal friend, but I think we need to have standards,” Durbin told “The Briefing with Steve Scully” on SiriusXM in an interview airing Friday.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) confirmed the policy change Sunday, while insisting, “I will continue to wear a suit.”
