The top Democrat on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Wednesday he will oppose President Donald Trump's nomination of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state, making it unlikely he will have the committee's backing before the full Senate votes.One Republican on Foreign Relations, Sen. Rand Paul, opposes Pompeo, so the nominee would need at least one Democrat to get a majority of votes on the committee, which has 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats.Nine of the 10 Democrats have announced they oppose Pompeo.Pompeo had more meetings in Congress Wednesday, including one with Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, a Warner aide said.
