WASHINGTON – Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are not the only public figures with a lot riding on Tuesday’s vote.

Leaders of several banking regulators, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Federal Housing Finance Agency, are likely to see their jobs greatly affected by the outcome of the presidential election.   CFPB Director Richard Cordray, who was installed by Obama in January without Senate confirmation much to the GOP’s outrage, is expected to hold office at least until his recess appointment expires at the end of 2013, no matter the election victor.   But the outcome will impact the CFPB’s leadership longer-term, as well as what challenges Cordray faces on the job over the next year.
