“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 at the time.
Tanden’s nomination was withdrawn over a lack of congressional support following criticism of previous Twitter posts. Tanden deleted over 1,000 tweets in the days leading up to her confirmation hearing, but most of them were saved by members of the media.
