Reserving the right to object, was there a consent entered into on speaking order earlier?

They told me to come at 11:10 is all I know.

I was told to come at 11:00. I think it is fair to go back and forth. I ask unanimous consent that the Senator from Iowa be recognized to speak after the Senator from South Carolina.

Without objection, it is so ordered. The Senator from South Carolina is recognized for 5 minutes.
