Biden withdraws Tanden's nomination to lead OMB

United States President Joe Biden announced he withdrew his nomination of Neera Tanden (pictured) for the position of the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) at her request.

"I have the utmost respect for her record of accomplishment, her experience and her counsel, and I look forward to having her serve in a role in my Administration. She will bring valuable perspective and insight to our work," Biden said in a statement.

Tanden faced slim odds to win Senate confirmation after several moderate senators announced their opposition to her appointment. In the past, she used social media to launch attacks against multiple politicians from both major US parties.
