WH reaffirms support for Tanden's OMB nomination

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reaffirmed on Monday United States President Joe Biden's administration's support for Neera Tanden's nomination for Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OBM).

"Neera Tanden=accomplished policy expert, would be 1st Asian American woman to lead OMB, has lived experience having benefitted from a number of federal programs as a kid, looking ahead to the committee votes this week and continuing to work toward her confirmation," Psaki tweeted.

Earlier this month, Senator from West Virginia Joe Manchin, a Democrat, and Senator from Maine Susan Collins said they would not vote to confirm Tanden to the position. Meanwhile, Biden remarked he would not withdraw Tanden's nomination.
