Biden says Neera Tanden has withdrawn name from consideration as nominee for Director of the Office of Management and Budget

President Biden announced late on Tuesday that Neera Tanden, his nominee for Director of the Office of Management and Budget has withdrawn name from consideration after she faced massive opposition from Republicans and a moderate Democrat Joe Manchin from West Virginia.

The White House released the President’s letter accepting her withdrawal from consideration and her own letter informing the president she was withdrawing her name.

Her crime, according to Republicans, was that she said things on the social media that were not nice to them.

Statement by President Joe Biden

I have accepted Neera Tanden’s request to withdraw her name from nomination for Director of the Office of Management and Budget. 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.

Letter from Neera Tanden to President Biden Withdrawing Her Nomination

Dear President Biden,

I am writing to you to withdraw my nomination for Director of the Office of Management and Budget. It has been an honor of a lifetime to be considered for this role and for the faith placed in me. 

I appreciate how hard you and your team at the White House has worked to win my confirmation. Unfortunately, it now seems clear that there is no path forward to gain confirmation, and I do not want continued consideration of my nomination to be a distraction from your other priorities.

I am incredibly grateful for your leadership on behalf of the American people and for your agenda that will make such a transformative difference in people’s lives.

Sincerely,

Neera Tanden
