Neera Tanden, the American political consultant, is facing bumps in her way to getting nominated in some valuable posts. Joe Manchin, the Senator from West Virginia, made the declaration of the fact that he would not be supporting her nomination. She was to be nominated as the budget chief of the White House. This statement was given on Friday.
Not only that, but something worse happened. The public figure is losing the support that she needs the most for another strategic post. It is that of the Office of Management and Budget director. Senator Joe Manchin recently got joined by three fellow senators who are of the same opinion.
They are Mitt Romney, the former presidential candidate from the Republican party, Rob Portman, the politician from the Republican party, and Susan Collins, the Republican Senator from Maine. These politicians have cause Neera Tanden to fall short of a vote.
Neera Tanden Retains White House Support Until?
The president of the United States of America, Joe Biden, is in need of a Republican party member in the Senate. This is necessary for the nomination of Meera Tandon. And the three members, Portman, Romney and Collins were the most obvious support. It is not a hidden fact that the upper house is controlled by the Democratic party by very few numbers.
The reason stated by the three with regard to changing their minds is the tweets made by Neera Tanden. However, she does have the support of the White House. But this does not mean that the officials are not looking elsewhere. According to reports, they are thinking of some “backup plans”.
There are a few moderate politicians who have not stated their opinions with regard to the nomination. They are Bernie Sanders and Kyrsten Sinema, the two Senators. They have not come out to state their opinions until now. Sanders had been criticized by Neera Tandon over the platform of Twitter.
