Arizona’s congressional delegation is at odds over  President Trump’s permanent replacement pick for outgoing Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke.

When President Trump nominated acting Secretary David Bernhardt to succeed Zinke at the Interior department, Republicans quickly supported the president’s nominee, but Democrats raised their doubts.

Democrats believe that Bernhardt, a former oil and gas lobbyist, has a conflict because his former firm  did a lot of work on energy and mining.
