There is more bad news for Neera Tanden, Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Office of Management and Budget. Susan Collins says she won’t vote to confirm Tanden.
On Friday, Joe Manchin broke ranks with the Democrats, saying he will not support Tanden. That means the nominee needs the backing of a Republican Senator.
Collins was the most likely candidate, or would have been if Tanden hadn’t previously attacked her. But Tanden lacked the self-restraint to avoid shooting at even the least conservative of Republican Senators.
To my knowledge, Sen. Murkowski hasn’t publicly taken a position. At this point, I’m not sure I’d put anything beyond Murkowski when it comes to siding with Democrats. However, it seems unlikely that, with Collins and Romney in opposition, she will rally to aid a nasty hyper-partisan Democrat like Neera Tanden.
Are any other Biden nominees in trouble? Maybe. Reportedly, Joe Manchin isn’t sold on Xavier Becerra, Biden’s pick to run the Department of Health and Human Services.
