Even before the White House handed in the name of John Bryson for the job, Senate Republicans had vowed to block any nominee over administration foot-dragging on free-trade agreements.

"I find Mr Bryson unacceptable as secretary of commerce for the United States, and I will work in opposition to his conformation," said Sen. John Barrasso, vice chairman of the Republican Conference, to The Washington Times.
