Neera Tanden withdraws nomination as White House budget chief

Date: 04 March 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • The Biden administration will stop pursuing the nomination of Indian American Neera Tanden for Director of the powerful Office of Management & Budget (OBM), after her withdrawal.
  • It had increasingly become clear that Ms. Tanden could not win enough support in an evenly divided Senate.
  • Her strongly worded tweets were central to the opposition to her candidacy from Senators on both sides of the aisle, as was her work at the Centre for American Progress.
  • Had she won the nomination, Ms. Tanden would have become the first person of colour to lead the White House budget office.
  • Ms. Tanden, who was an adviser for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 and 2008 campaigns, worked as a director for domestic policy in the Bill Clinton White House and also advised Barack Obama in his 2008 campaign.
