(Reuters)

U.S. Senator John Kerry on Tuesday won the support of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday to replace Hillary Clinton as President Barack Obama's new secretary of state.

The full Senate is expected to confirm Kerry later on Tuesday.

The five-term senator and 2004 failed presidential candidate has broad support from fellow Democrats as well as Republicans in the Senate.
