Over the past few days, five key senators have led a counteroffensive against a tide of opposition to the reconfirmation of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

After signs emerged that Bernanke’s appointment to a second term may have been in danger, public statements from high-powered senators have been helping pave the way for his confirmation.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Friday kicked off the defense of the embattled Fed chairman, issuing a statement that he will vote for his confirmation.

Next, top senators from two key committees said they would back Bernanke for a second term.
