  • President Joe Biden withdrew Neera Tanden nomination to serve as budget director on Tuesday, bowing to pressure from lawmakers over her controversial tweets.

  • In a statement, Biden wrote that he had accepted Tendons request to withdraw her name from consideration.

  • During her confirmation hearings, Tanden had apologized for bashing Republicans on Twitter in the past, but was ultimately unable to win any GOP support.
