The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has endorsed Secretary of State-designee Hillary Clinton and agreed to send her nomination to the full Senate for a confirmation vote.

The panel voted 16-1 in favor of Clinton. Louisiana Republican David Vitter was the lone vote against.

The full Senate vote is expected on Tuesday, after the formal nomination paperwork is filed following Barack Obama's swearing-in.
