BREAKING: White House withdraws Tanden nomination amid speculation she lacked votes to get confirmed

Amid speculation she did not have the votes to be confirmed, the White House pulled Neera Tanden’s nomination to lead the Office of Management and Budget.

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin said he would not support Tanden’s nomination.

This was the first Cabinet-level defeat for President Joe Biden.


David Sirota tweeted:

The reason to celebrate the end of Neera Tanden’s nomination has nothing to do with her late-night out-of-control rage-tweeting and everything to do with her record.

She is not a victim — she is a perpetrator.
